LSB approves public access rules

Following LSB approval of public access rule changes in March, the prohibition on accepting cases eligible for legal aid has been removed.


Revised guidance for barristers, lay clients and clerks, along with model client care letters, is available on our website, here: http://bit.ly/11y17HF

The prohibition on barristers with less than three years’ standing will be removed once new public access training courses are in place. We are talking to providers about the new training and will keep the profession informed about progress and the transitional arrangements for those who are already conducting public access work.
