Public access work
Since July 2004, it has been possible for members of the public to instruct barristers directly, without the need to employ a professionally qualified intermediary, in relation to certain categories of work—notably the giving of legal advice.
However, this applies only where the barrister concerned, and at least one clerk in his or her chambers, has been appropriately trained. Even then, it does not apply where the barrister considers that the case is complex and will require work to be undertaken by a solicitor or other qualified person, or that the interests of the lay client require the involvement of such a person, or that the proposed fee is insufficient.
A number of the Association’s members are trained to accept instructions from the public directly.
If you require further details about the public access system, please consult the Bar Council’s website.
