The EU Bar Association (EUBA) is a specialist bar association for Irish barristers who practice in the area of EU Law. It was established in December 2016 with the purpose of providing a forum for barristers who practice or possess expertise in the area of EU law or who would wish to develop such practice or expertise.
The EUBA provides specialist education to its members through seminars, conferences and morning briefing sessions which seek to keep members up to date on developments in a complex and fast moving area of EU law.
The EUBA promotes the Bar as a specialist provider of advocacy and legal advice in this area.
Champion of Equitable Briefing
The Bar of Ireland’s new Equitable Briefing Policy, approved by Council in June 2022, sets out a number of supports that the Council provide to members, including but not limited to, the development of specialist areas of practice through the formation of the Specialist Bar Associations.
The Equitable Briefing Policy asks that solicitors make all reasonable endeavours to consider gender in selecting a diverse panel of barristers with the required seniority, expertise, and experience.
