Young barristers and pupils are being urged to attend an open meeting this Wednesday about the Bar Council's proposed new complaints system. Ronald Thwaites QC, head of chambers at 10 King's Bench Walk, is calling the meeting to explain his rejection of the proposals which he and 150 supporters regard as "flawed, dangerous and anti-Bar". He says barristers, in particular juniors and those in crime work, will be made vulnerable to unmeritorious complaints under the proposed compensation scheme and the new offence of providing inadequate professional services. The meeting starts at 5.30 pm in the Morrison Hall, Council of Legal Eduction, Raymond Buildings, Gray's Inn. Those unable to attend can fax or send their signed agenda to the Chief Clerk at Thwaites' chambers.
