The Bar Standards Board (BSB) intends to introduce a compulsory Negotiation Skills assessment which must be satisfactorily completed during pupillage. It is likely that this requirement will be effective from 2025.
The Inns of Court College of Advocacy hopes to develop materials to assist pupils in their preparation for this assessment.
More information will follow on this page in due course.
In the meantime, the BSB intends to provide Negotiation Skills course updates here.
