Marketing directory of barristers' chambers in England and Wales FAQ

A barrister (sometimes called a member of the Bar) is an individual who provides specialist legal advice to their clients as well as representing them in court in front of a judge or at tribunals. Tribunals are specialist judicial bodies responsible for and with and expertise in particular areas of law.

A member of the Bar offers legal services to clients in a specific area of law including chancery law (estates and trusts), commercial law, common law (includes family, housing and personal injury law), criminal law, entertainment law, environmental law, and sports law.

The main difference between a barrister and a solicitor is that a barrister represents their consumers of legal services in front of courts and a solicitor performs legal work outside of courts. Most of the work a barrister does will be given to them by solicitors’ practices and they will be hired to provide legal services in their particular areas of expertise.

Do solicitors appear in court? A solicitor generally does not appear in court – they mainly try to keep disputes out of court by either persuading the opposing side that their case is not strong enough to go to court or, in commercial and non-criminal disputes, attempting to broker an agreement between both sides avoiding the need for court hearings.

What is the difference between a solicitor and a lawyer? In the UK, a “lawyer” is a term used to describe solicitors and barristers – there is no actual legal defintion of the word “lawyer”. Lawyers therefore may describe any person whose role is to represent their clients in court or to provide them with legal advice.

We do not record the details of every member of the Bar working at a particular chambers nor do we colect details of clerks or other employees.

The primary purpose of our list of barristers is to provide our clients with the information they need to market their products and services to chambers and not to provide an exhaustive list of each member of the Bar who are tenants within a chambers.

With each representation we make to barristers’ chambers, we only request information for the individuals who are the senior people in charge of making decisions for the chambers. In many cases, chambers volunteer the information of barristers’ clerks rather than the tenant who is the most senior member of the Bar like a QC.

If you are seeking a particular barrister or member of the Bar or chambers, you should consult a website like that of the Bar Council or the website of the Chancery Bar Association.

Our list of barristers contains information for chambers across England and Wales however the main geographical concentration of barrister chambers on our database is in London.

You can select only to market your products and services to barristers on our database by the number of staff they have (and, in a limited number of cases, the number of branches in applicable).

If you search this category, the information is banded in groups of employees.

For example, our record of employee number categories are:

  • 1,
  • 2 to 5,
  • 6 to 10,
  • 11 to 25,
  • 26 to 50,
  • 51 to 100,
  • 101 to 250,
  • 251 to 500, and
  • 500 and above.

No. Our register of barristers’ chambers does not include any information of the types of case taken by each member of the chambers nor do we record the areas of law in which a chambers’ barristers specialises.

There are a number of different business categories you can search on when compiling your list of barristers for your direct marketing campaigns and teams.

One of the the major finance-related business categories is turnover size (60%). With this category, as with the number of employee categories, the information is banded and occasionally modelled.

Another important finance-related business category is the net worth (7%) of a chambers and whether it is profit- or loss-making (2%). Within those finance-related business categories, we have the following categories – the %age increase or decrease in profitability YOY (2%) and the turnover increase or decrease YOY (shown in pound sterling) (2%).

There are other business categories which relate to the chambers itself – there is a business category on website addresses (60%), a business category on the year in which the chambers began trading (40%), and a business category on incorporation date (which includes the company registration number).

For each business category listed, we do not yet have universal coverage. The percentage numbers shown relate to the coverage we have on our entire UK business database as a whole and not specifically barristers’ chambers. So, for example, where we advertise 40% coverage of business websites, this means that, on an average database a client asks us to search for, we have business websites for 40 of the firms we provide out of 100. However, the proportion of barristers’ business websites may be lower or higher on the count we run for you.

The Scottish equivalent of a barrister is an advocate – they offer legal advice to consumers of legal services and conduct defence and prosecution casework within courts. The training required to become an advocate in Scotland is very different to the training required in England and Wales to become a barrister.

Scottish advocates (practising and non-practising) belong to the Faculty of Advocates (please click here for their website).

The UK Public Access scheme, first established in 2004, allows members of the public to approach a barrister direct. In the past, solicitors, lawyers, and other professionals were responsibile for appointing a barrister on behalf of their clients. The rules governing Public Access have been gradually eased since its introduction as the public have better come to understand how Public Access works and when it should and shouldn’t be used.

The major benefit of the Public Access scheme for consumers of legal services is cost-related however it does mean that those consumers now must be more involved with the aspects of case management (like record management, document management, and record filing) that solicitors and lawyers would normally be responsible for. A barrister may only take on a case under the Public Access system if it is in the best interests of a consumer of legal service and in the interests of justice.

Please click here for the Public Access website search page. To find barristers with particular areas of expertise, please search on the site using relevant keywords. Each barrister on the site is a practising members of the Bar.

The Bar Standards Board in the UK is the regulatory body for all barristers.

The Bar Standards Board is responsible for setting out the education and training requirements need for someone to qualify as a barrister or member of the Bar. The Bar Standards Board ensures that each member of the Bar maintains and updates their skills throughout their careers. The Bar Standards Board is also responsible for handling disputes against a member of the Bar and for taking action against a member of the Bar where appropriate.

The four countries of the United Kingdom have four separate legal systems – English law, Scots law, Northern Ireland law, and, since 2007, purely Welsh law. Hence, the regulatory bodies for barristers, solicitors, and lawyers varies according to which of these countries a legal sector professional carries out their business in.

The Bar Standards Board, sometimes referred to as the “Bar Association”, is responsible for all members of the Bar in England and Wales and advocates in Scotland. In contrast, the Law Society in the UK is responsible for setting out training standards and handling disputes against solicitors.

Please click here for the website home page of The Bar Standards Board and here for the website home page of the Law Society of England and Wales. The website for the Law Society of Scotland is here and the website for the Law Society of Northern Ireland is here.

According to Statista, there are approximately 35 thousand barristers and judges in employment in the UK.

In UK courts, members of the Bar generally refer to each other as “my learned friend” and address solicitors (particularly on the opposing side in court) as “my friend”.

According to Prospect, the average salary for a UK barrister with around five years’ experience can earn anything from around £50,000 to £200,000. For those with over ten years’ experience, members of the Bars’ earnings can range from £65,000 to £1,000,000. Employed members of the Bar can expect to earn from around £25,000 to in excess of £100,000.
