The BAJ provides access to legal advice on every aspect of employment and copyright law. Together with our in-house solicitor, we retain the services of expert barristers at Outer Temple Chambers, at no charge to BAJ members, taking cases to an employment tribunal or a county court where appropriate.

There are no guarantees in litigation, and the BAJ has a responsibility to safeguard its funds for all its members. No two cases are the same, and it is BAJ policy to pursue members’ cases where counsel advises that there is a greater than 50% chance of success.*

Initial contact for legal advice should be via the legal telephone helpline service provided to members. If deemed necessary, the union’s solicitor will be engaged to act for members.
