The Professional Negligence Bar Association 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.

Since then its membership has grown to over 900 including over 80 silks. The work undertaken 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.
