Mandatory Disclosure Statement


Every barrister who holds a NSW practising certificate, is a member of the Bar Association and has approved professional indemnity insurance, is covered by the NSW Bar Association’s Professional Standards Scheme.

All members covered by the Scheme are required to display the mandatory disclosure statement, ‘Liability limited by a scheme approved under Professional Standards Legislation’. Pursuant to the Professional Standards Legislation, the disclosure statement is to appear on all materials given (or caused to be given) by members of an Association to clients or perspective clients that promote or advertise the person or their occupation.

The Professional Standards Council have published a guide on responsibilities of members to use the disclosure statement which can be viewed here.

Should you have any queries regarding the Scheme, please contact the Bar Association’s Professional Standards and Membership, Manager via email.
