Public Access

The 'Public Access Scheme' allows individuals, business managers, CEOs and directors who are responsible for their company's legal advice to directly instruct specialist barristers.


Our barristers will give you a fixed rate at an agreed hourly fee to help you manage your budget for cost effective legal advice. For more information, including whether or not your case might be suitable to be handled under public access, please refer to the Bar Standards Board - Public Access Guidance For Lay Clients.

If you are interested in instructing one of our Public Access Barristers please complete our online Public Access Application Form or contact our clerks.
