Joint LCLCBA/ALBA Seminar – Balancing the Bar: Is it possible to balance work and life, and still achieve excellence?

Date / time
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Speakers are:

  • Sir Stephen Males (The Rt. Hon. Males LJ, Court of Appeal)
  • Catherine Callaghan QC (Blackstone Chambers, Vice Chair of ALBA)
  • Farhaz Khan (3 Verulam Buildings)

The panel, each at a different stage of their successful careers in the law, will provide their insight into whether it is possible to strike the correct balance between work and life amidst the unique challenges that a career at the Bar (and life itself) throws up.

The seminar will be delivered in a hybrid format. There will be a live event at the Law Society, with all three speakers appearing in person, followed by an opportunity to catch up with colleagues over wine and nibbles. The event will also be broadcast simultaneously on Zoom.

As numbers for the live event are limited by the capacity of the room, please email the LCLCBA administrator at to add your name to the list . If you would prefer to log on via Zoom, please register here:

This is a joint event open to members of the LCLCBA and ALBA, together with their pupils.

We are very much looking forward to seeing some of our members again since the long lay-off of live events!
