BSB Handbook Explained - Public Access

It is common, particularly in Public Access, for barristers to use advertising and marketing services, barrister owned referral companies and third-party introducers to obtain work. We have therefore updated our Public Access Guidance for Barristers to include a new section on advertising and referral models. In using these models to obtain work, barristers must ensure that they comply with BSB Handbook requirements. The guidance sets out the key BSB Handbook requirements to be aware of, and is available on our website.
