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 Crown Office Chambers for advice, and in some circumstances representation, on their own behalf or another's behalf in the specialist area.
