    Equality and Diversity Committee 

    COMBAR sets want to recruit the very best people, irrespective of gender, ethnicity or background. To this end, COMBAR set up the COMBAR E&D committee in 2005 to promote equality and diversity and to ensure COMBAR members keep up to date with the latest regulatory requirements. The full extract of the BSB Handbook relating to E&D can be seen here.

    Junior COMBAR 

    The Junior COMBAR Committee deals with issues of interest and importance to junior commercial barristers. The Committee arranges social and marketing events, recruitment events, and lectures. It seeks to create and foster strong relationships amongst junior practitioners, both barristers and solicitors.
