General Council of the Bar

An approved regulator of legal services, a elwir hefyd yn Bar Council

This authority is not subject to FOI law, so is not legally obliged to respond (manylion).

The Bar Council is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000. We include the Council here because of its public role as the approved regulator of the Bar of England and Wales.

The Bar Council's "regulatory arm" is called the Bar Standards Board. *
