Female barristers received 25 per cent of reported briefs in 2017-18, according to the Law Council, but only 17 per cent of the value of those briefs. This is according to a report to be released by the Council on 11 October, with the eight per cent gap between the number of briefs and their value up from five per cent in the previous financial year. The Law Council adopted an equitable briefing policy in 2016, setting a target of 30 per cent of briefs for women and at least 30 per cent of the value of brief fees by 2020.
