Following key changes in the law in 2004, members of the general public now seeking legal advice or representation of any kind can now (in certain areas of law) directly approach a Barrister, without the previous need to first engage the services of a solicitor.

This process will inevitably save an individual considerable financial and administrative expense. This process is called “Public Access” and reflects the future of the British Legal system.

Public Access has been introduced to allow an individual in immediate need of legal expertise the opportunity to approach a specialist advocate in cost effective circumstances.
