What is Public Access?

In July 2004 the Public Access Scheme came into force, which allowed members of the public as well as organisations to instruct a Barrister directly on most legal matters. In the past, it would have been necessary to instruct a Solicitor who would then appoint a Barrister on your behalf. The question you can now ask yourself is “Should I contact a Solicitor or Barrister?”

This allows you to benefit from the savings in time and costs that can come from going direct rather than through an intermediary. Now anyone – individuals, companies, firms etc can instruct a Barrister directly.
