Assault and battery is the first crown court case for newly qualified barrister Kakoly Pande and there’s a judgement in the House of Lords after a seven-year fight – but can the Bar face up to its critics that it’s an elitist, out-dated and old fashioned club?

Share your thoughts through the discussion thread below.

First broadcast: Friday 21 Nov 2008 on BBC TWO England & Northern Ireland
