The Direct [Public] Access scheme

Clients can now instruct barristers directly under the Bar Council’s Public Access Scheme. There are some exceptions and prohibitions, but the general rule allows access to qualified barristers in private practice without the involvement of a solicitor. A key advantage to privately funded clients is the reduction of cost and potential inconvenience of having to pay two sets of fees in certain situations.

Direct Access scheme information here.

This approach may not be suitable for some types of case, which can be discussed.

The scope and application of the ‘Direct Access’ scheme [Public Access] in the domain of pure criminal law and related proceedings is extremely limited, and is more suited to other types of litigation and advisory work.
