Timescales

Timescales for a case may vary depending on factors such as barristers’ availability, the type and complexity of the case, the other side’s approach, and court waiting times.

Public Access

If you are a member of the public, the Bar Standards Board’s Public Access Guidance for Lay Clients is provided. This will help you to understand how the Public Access scheme works and explains how you can use it to instruct barristers directly. Please see under ‘Expertise’ at the foot of the Homepage ‘Public Access’ for more details.
