The Faculty is led by elected office-bearers and by an elected Faculty Council.

The Faculty is led by elected office-bearers:  the Dean of Faculty, the Vice-dean, the Treasurer, the Clerk and the Keeper of the Library.

The Faculty also elects the Chairman of Faculty Services Limited, a company established to provide administrative and other support services to Advocates.

Key decisions are made by Faculty Council, which comprises members elected for constituencies within the bar.  Much of the Faculty’s work is undertaken by committees established for particular purposes.  

The Faculty Secretariat supports the office-bearers, Faculty Council and committees in the work of the Faculty.
