2024 GDPR Certification for Barristers

GDPR Certification for Barristers

Designed for self-employed barristers who want an end-to-end compliance solution which uniquely combines barrister-specific training, a self-led annual audit of your practice and documentation templates.

Our barrister-specific certification is uniquely recognised by the Bar Standards Board (BSB) in its 2020 Regulatory Return as an appropriate measure of GDPR compliance.

Once a barrister has successfully completed the GDPR Certification, their name is listed in our Directory of Certified Barristers to demonstrate to instructing solicitors, clients and other bodies that they have implemented a framework of compliance throughout their practice.
