Winter 2020

Winter 2020 Issue of BarNews

Welcome to the inaugural digital edition of Bar News! It is a special edition, focussing on COVID-19 and its effect on practice at the bar in NSW.

Being thrust into the world of remote working has changed the way we interact in so many different ways. The Bar News Committee determined this was the time to expedite the launch of the Bar News website and produce a completely online edition.

The best way to read the magazine is as a Flip Book, turning the pages like a hardcopy. Alternatively you can read individual pieces as webpages.
