3PB Direct

There are rules in place to make sure that all barristers providing legal services to clients are fully qualified.   

The Bar Standards Board, as the independent regulator of barristers, sets those rules.  The rules make sure that the barristers have the proper practising certificate and have completed approved training on Direct Access.   

They also say that a barrister must tell the Bar Council that they will be doing direct access work. 

Find out more about the rules here.
