Victoria Woodbridge elected as the next Chair of the PNBA
Crown Office Chambers is delighted to announce that Victoria Woodbridge has been elected as the next Chair of the PNBA, the Professional Negligence Bar Association, succeeding Tom Grant KC of Wilberforce Chambers. Victoria will be Chair for a two-year term commencing on 24 January 2024.
The PNBA is one of the largest specialist Bar Associations with over 900 barrister members. It was founded in September 1990 when a group of like-minded practitioners inaugurated an association to promote the idea of a specialist professional negligence Bar supported by continuing professional education. The work done by its members includes generic professional indemnity issues and specialisation concerning legal, clinical, financial and construction professionals and extends to matters of ethics, discipline, regulatory control and public law accountability. The Association continues to play an important role in the education and training of its members and runs an annual lecture and seminar programme to ensure its members remain at the cutting edge of major developments in professional liability. In addition to its continuing education activities the PNBA is represented on the General Council of the Bar and actively represents the view of its members when reforms are proposed by Government departments, HMCTS, the Civil Justice Council, the Rules Committee, the Law Commission and others.
