When a lawyer says “I am speaking from the bar”, what he is saying is that “I am speaking the whole truth.” Once a lawyer says he is speaking from the bar, it means whatever he says in that regard should be taken as if he is under oath in which case, he has to speak the truth and the court is expected to act on what he says.

Also, a lawyer may tender a document “from the bar”, which means the document has to be received by the court and be acted upon as if it is being tendered by a witness given evidence under oath.
