Members of the criminal law team at Garden Court Chambers support the position of the Criminal Bar Association that neither the level of remuneration apparently to be offered nor the government’s proposed timetable for implementation represent an adequate response to the crisis that has enveloped the criminal Bar. 

The criminal Bar is an essential part of a fit for purpose justice system; the long term future of both are in peril.  The recent exodus of qualified criminal barristers must be a wake up call.

Accordingly and in line with the result of the CBA ballot, members of these chambers will not be accepting returns for AGFS criminal cases to be heard on or after 11th April.
