The First Day of Action

Dear Colleague,

Today is the first day of action. 

We anticipate that colleagues will begin assembling outside the following court centres from around 8.30am:

  • Central Criminal Court
  • Birmingham Crown Court
  • Manchester Crown Court (Crown Square)
  • Leeds Crown Court
  • Bristol Crown Court
  • Cardiff Crown Court

A designated CBA coordinator may make a statement from the court steps at approximately 10am. Exact timings and arrangements will vary according to press attendance and the preferences of the local bar, so please arrive in good time.

You may wish to robe but are not required to do so. The important thing is that you are there, in solidarity with your colleagues.

If you are a prosecutor, or otherwise not participating in the day of action, please do not feel anxious about attending at court. If you are able to assemble with your colleagues before your scheduled hearing, or during any court breaks, that would be very much appreciated.

A reminder that on the second day of action (Tuesday, 28th June 2022) there will be a national zoom meeting for all CBA members. Please register with the CBA administrator to receive your invitation ([email protected]).

Access details will be circulated at 9am on 28th June. Attendance is strictly limited to CBA members, so once in receipt of the link, please do not circulate it or make it public.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Our unity is our strength.
