BSB and LSB launch new survey on the operation of the Public Access scheme for barristers to complete

23 December 2015

The Bar Standards Board (BSB) and Legal Services Board (LSB) are conducting research in order to gain an in-depth understanding of the operation of the Public Access scheme. This work will develop a detailed picture of the current provision of legal services through public access barristers and help us to understand the perceptions of barristers about the operation of the current regulatory arrangements.

Pye Tait Consulting has been commissioned to undertake this work on behalf of the BSB and LSB. During December 2015 and January 2016, Pye Tait Consulting will be contacting public access practitioners to ask them to take part in a survey, which can be undertaken either online or via telephone.

Public access practitioners that wish to participate in this research can access the online version of the survey via this link: www.pyetait.com/publicaccess
