Frequently asked questions

Is my case suitable for the Public Access scheme?
Not always. Some cases are suitable for public access and some cases require a solicitor’s intervention as litigation may be required. Barristers are not currently permitted to litigate. Although there are numerous scenarios where Public Access may be entirely appropriate.

When do I have to pay?
Fees for every item of work are normally paid in advance.

Do I enter into a contract with the barrister?
Yes. Once fees have been agreed you will receive a contract signed by Counsel which will be in the form of a Client Care Letter. You will be required to sign both keeping one for yourself. It is important that you read this contract carefully.

What will my role be?
You will carry out certain tasks which a solicitor would otherwise do. This would include preparing the papers that Counsel will need. You will also have to prepare instructions which are a synopsis of your case, a chronology or timeline of events and exactly what you are asking the barrister to do.
