Bar Standards Board 'in shambolic state'
If anyone should be able to organise a rigorous system of complaint and disciplinary tribunals, you would expect lawyers to. Yet, on this programme on Tuesday we heard a number of complaints about the Bar Standards Board - the body that regulates barristers in England and Wales. Today, the Board answers back. Baroness Deech is the chairman and will answer the critics.
As I thought, female Chairmen have been in charge of this shambles.
The Bar Standards Council was created in 2006. The Chairman then was Ruth Evans

More women are mediocre than men who dominate the higher and lower end of the ability spectrum.
