Licensed Access

The Licensed Access scheme (formerly known as "BarDIRECT" or "Direct Professional Access") allows organisations or individuals who have expertise in particular areas of the law to apply to the Bar Standards Board to be licensed to instruct barristers directly.

A Licensed Access client can instruct any member of Chambers for advice, and in some circumstances representation, on its own behalf or another's behalf in the specialist area.

A list of the professional associations and bodies whose members are entitled to instruct barristers on a licensed access basis can be found here.
