Members of the public, professionals and companies can instruct
a barrister without the use of a solicitor. You can search the
directory of trained barristers by town or city, area of practice
or the barrister's name.
The Bar Council recently entered into a new partnership with two
barristers to launch a new Direct Access Portal (DAP) website. The
Portal provides details of all barristers who undertake work in
this manner and is available to use now.
The Bar Council's
existing direct access register, accessible using the search
function below, will continue to be live until it is fully
migrated to the new portal towards the end of summer
