Barristers in their early years of practice will be further supported through the development of a new toolkit and online hub, both of which address some of the key issues relevant to the Young Bar.
The Bar Representation Fee (BRF) funds the Bar Council's vital work in representing the Bar's interests and promoting and supporting fair access to and the administration of justice. All of the funds raised from the BRF are used exclusively for this work.
The Direct Access Portal, which acts as an online register, is the main hub for consumers, businesses and other organisations seeking to find a direct access barrister. The aim of the new website is to help drive more business to barristers.
