A barrister is anyone who has been Called to the Bar in England and Wales but to offer a full range of legal services (including what are known as “reserved legal activities”) a barrister must also be authorised to practise and only these barristers are recorded below on the Barristers’ Register. It records their practising status and address, the reserved legal activities they are authorised to undertake and whether they have been the subject of any disciplinary findings. Barristers who are not authorised to practise are allowed to provide a more limited range of legal services but they must not refer to themselves as barristers in doing so. So neither they, nor barristers who have been disbarred, are on the Register. But you can still find out whether they have been the subject of a disciplinary finding here.
