Bar Council begins consultation on modernising terms of instructions from solicitors – The Bar Council

“The Bar Council, the Approved Regulator for barristers in England and Wales, has begun a three-month consultation on new terms of engagement of barristers for solicitors. The move comes as the profession looks to update the current basis on which barristers take instructions from solicitors, which is viewed as outdated and unsatisfactory. The new terms, drawn up by the Bar Council’s Implementation Committee, are intended to be transparent and enforceable, and to provide more protection to barristers (particularly young barristers) in countering unacceptable delays in payments. The consultation is being carried out with members of the Bar and a number of interested bodies, including the Approved Regulators of lawyers practising in England and Wales.”
