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?

This week, we'd like to hear your thoughts on this question:

If you could change one thing about the Bar for the future what would it be?

Share your thoughts through the discussion thread below.

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