Direct Access:

In submitting the online direct access form you agree that you are simply making an enquiry with Queen Square Chambers at this stage. Submission of the form does not amount to instructing a barrister and Queen Square Chambers cannot guarantee that any of its barrister will accept instructions in your case.

This is because important factors need to be considered first, including whether there is a barrister available who is qualified to carry out direct access work and who has appropriate experience to accept instructions in your case. It also needs to be considered whether the barrister is available to attend any upcoming hearings which have already been listed.

Once you have submitted a form, one of the clerks from Queen Square Chambers will contact you to discuss your case and to liaise with the barrister.

You will only have formally instructed a barrister when you receive the client care letter directly from the barrister. This letter will contain a description of the work they have agreed to carry out for you and the fee for which they will carry out that work.

In submitting the online direct access form, you agree that your data will be processed by a third party engaged by Queen Square Chambers to relay the information from our website server to our email server.

If you do not want to complete the online form, you can submit an enquiry directly to Queen Square Chambers via email: publicaccess@qsc.law. Your enquiry will be processed more quickly if the email contains all of the information required in the online form.
