Instructions are accepted on the basis of the Bar Council’s Standard Contractual Terms.

The standard contractual terms for the supply of legal services by barristers to authorised persons 2020, as referred to in Rule rC30.9c of the BSB Handbook.

The Terms were first published in 2012. In 2018, clauses 6 and 7 were updated to take account of the General Data Protection Regulation. In 2020, clause 4.3 was updated to refer to the Money Laundering Regulations 2017.

Chambers welcomes enquiries from clients who, for whatever reason, feel that the Standard Terms are not for them. In such cases, instructions will be accepted on a bespoke basis, with any departures from the Standard Terms being agreed by the Senior clerk.
