In suitable cases, members of the public may now go directly to a barrister without having to instruct a solicitor. As such, it could potentially save you money whilst giving you access to the Bar, since you would be paying for a barrister only instead of a barrister and solicitor.
Although the barrister would be able to deal with most aspects of your case, you could have to assist in some limited areas, generally with correspondence and filing documents with the court. Public access is available in all types of work that barristers can do, except for work funded out of legal aid.
To instruct a member of chambers directly please contact our clerks in order to discuss your requirements. Further information on the Public Access scheme from the Bar Council is available here.
