Bar Mutual distributes Renewal of Cover Forms in mid-January. Explanatory Notes are sent to each Chambers to assist Members in completing their form.

Members are encouraged to return their completed renewal form within 14 days of receipt and by 25 February at the latest.  Premiums are due by 1 April.

During the renewal period each Chambers will receive a list of its barristers who have not returned their renewal forms together with premium debited details. Barristers who do not return their renewal forms at the proper time may be reported to their Head of Chambers and to the Bar Standards Board.

Chambers should contact one of the Administrators on 020 7621 0405 urgently if a barrister:

  • is missed out (he/she should not complete the form intended for new barristers, but the spare Renewal Form sent with the pack can be photocopied as necessary) or
  • is unable to complete the Renewal Form for any reason.
