  • Isn't it time for the whole system of barrister regulation to be looked at. Why can solicitors do everyhing a a barrister can do (subject to Higher Rights) can employ barristers,and can form partnerships. A barrister can do none of these things. Also why does a barrister normally have to be instructed by a solicitor. it is restrictve outdated and ripe to be overturned. I am a barrister!

  • Bill.... Barristers will shortly be able to come into practice with Solicitors under LDP's. Fellow's of ILEX already can and are.

    I'm an ILEX Fellow, a Solicitor, studying for my Higher RIghts and a Commerical Mediator. I'm also looking to see if I can get called as a non practising Barrister whilst retaining my practice certificate as a Solicitor.

    Times are changing... and not before time!

  • Keep it up, Dr Gray. Enough of the protectionism for the few.
    I will seriously consider setting-up a CLS myself or joining hand with any other established CLS.

    To my dear Bar Council, I'll say, reform or perish.
