BHRC elects an Executive Committee to lead on the policy, strategy and delivery of its work. They are supported by one full-time Executive Officer, an Advisory Council, and a Drafting Committee (who provide initial drafts and research for BHRC statements and publications).

BHRC’s 2019 Executive Committee

The Bar Human Rights Committee’s Executive is elected by BHRC members every two years, to oversee the organisation’s strategy and implement its work. Executive members contribute their substantial expertise pro bono to produce BHRC publications and statements, lead fact-finding missions, collaborate with local partners, and represent the Committee to the media, external organisations and the public.

Members of the Executive then elect specific Office Holders, who hold additional responsibilities for leading the work of the Executive, and BHRC as a whole.
