Each of our barristers is self-employed and entirely independent. They all agree to be bound by our written constitution, which sets out what is expected of each individual. Our Heads of chambers perform the role of chairman, they are assisted by a Management Committee which is elected by the barristers at full chambers meetings twice a year.

All of our barristers are registered with and regulated by the Bar Standards Board of England and Wales. We adhere to strict regulations which govern barristers, called the Code of Conduct of the Bar of England and Wales, which can be found here: click here


Each individual barrister at St. Mary’s Chambers has professional liability insurance provided by the Bar Mutual Indemnity Fund Limited, 90 Fenchurch Street, London EC3M 4ST.
