Proposed Legal Profession (Barristers) Rules 2016

TAKE NOTICE that the Tasmanian Bar proposes to make legal profession rules under Division 2 of Part 3.1 of the Legal Profession Act 2007 about legal practice in this jurisdiction engaged in by Australian legal practitioners who practise solely as barristers.

The object of the proposed rules is to prescribe a range of legal practice matters for Tasmanian barristers, including pupillage requirements, and also to:

  1. Adopt the Australian Bar Association model rules in modified form; and
  2. Rescind some redundant rules of practice relating to barristers.

An electronic copy of the proposed rules may be accessed on the Tasmanian Bar website (www.tasmanianbar.com.au). Alternatively, arrangements to obtain a copy of or inspect the proposed rules may be made by contacting the Tasmanian Bar by telephone on (03) 6223 3844 during normal business hours.

The Tasmanian Bar invites comments and submissions in relation to the proposed rules. Comments and submissions may be sent to the Tasmanian Bar by e-mail to or by mail to:

The Secretary
The Tasmanian Bar
Malthouse Chambers
119 Hampden Road
Battery Point, Tasmania, 7000

The closing date for comments and submissions is 26 August 2016.
