  • Members of the public may now go directly to a barrister without having to involve an instructing solicitor or other intermediary. In the past it was necessary for clients to use a solicitor through whom the barrister would be instructed. Although the barrister’s role remains essentially the same, members of the public may instruct a barrister directly without the need for a solicitor. 

    The main advantage of the public access scheme is that it saves you money. Instead of paying for a solicitor and a barrister, you only pay for a barrister.
