The Barrister's Benevolent Association

From the Chairman, Terence Mowschenson QC

Monday 7 December 2020

Dear Member of the Bar,

As you will be aware the Barristers' Benevolent Association ("the BBA") has been providing assistance to members of the Bar and their dependants who face financial difficulties due to Covid 19. The assistance has been provided from a special fund set up by the BBA to which the four Inns of Court each made a generous donation.

The BBA has provided assistance to many members of the Bar affected by Covid 19, and continues to do so. If you are in need of financial assistance please do not hesitate to contact the BBA.

Christmas may be a particularly difficult time for those whose practices have been adversely affected by Covid.

Full details of how to apply for assistance can be found on our website at

With best wishes for Christmas and New Year.

Terence Mowschenson QC, Chairman – the BBA
