Walnut House welcomes public access requests
In the past members of the public were required to engage the services of a solicitor before instructing a barrister. The Public Access Rules provide that members of the public are now able to instruct barristers directly. One of the benefits of the Public Access Scheme is that access to justice is now more cost effective. This is because you will not need to pay to instruct a solicitor in order to have access to the services that a barrister can provide for you. Further, under the Public Access Scheme, you will carry out much of the routine work yourself, rather than paying a solicitor to do this for you.
