Council's ABA task

John Malpas reports

A drive to hammer home to American lawyers the difference between barristers and solicitors formed the centrepiece of the Bar Council's mission to the premier legal conference in the US. Bar Council chair David Penry-Davey QC led the Bar's delegation to last week's American Bar Association conference in Orlando. He was joined on the trip by vice chair Robert Owen QC, former Bar chair Peter Goldsmith QC and several other senior barristers.
