We are committed to ensuring that nobody is
disadvantaged in making a complaint because of a disability or
impairment. We can, for example, provide our literature in
different formats such as Braille, large print or on CD. We can
also give you additional time to respond to our enquiries. If
making your complaint in writing is difficult for you, we can take
the details of your complaint over the telephone. If you are
disabled, please get in touch with us straight away to tell us how
we can best help you.
The information in these pages applies
to barristers, and other people we regulate, in England and
The law that regulates barristers and lawyers is
complicated. We have simplified things to give you an idea of how
it applies to your situation. Please don't rely on these pages as a
complete statement of the law.
The quotes and cases we refer to are
not always real but show a typical situation. We hope they help you
to understand the system better and think about what might happen
to the complaint.
