Public Access has evolved, don’t get left behind!

Changes to the Public Access rules came into effect on 4th October 2013, as the Bar Standards Board (BSB) announced the appointment of HJT as an authorised provider of the new Public Access training scheme.

ONLY £299 + VAT!


Head of Professional Practice at the Bar Standards Board, Ewen Macleod said: “The new changes mean that clients will be able to access a broader range of Public Access barristers and can be more confident of the standard of service they will receive.”

HJT have been selected as an authorised provider to train barristers on the new scheme. Our programme has been developed to offer a convenient and cost-effective solution for barristers looking to kick-start their Public Access practise. Our format is aimed at maximising training benefits but minimising impact on your court time, with a 1 day face to face session of 8hrs followed by a 4hr online course.

We are also able to offer this as in house training.

The fascinating element to this training module was the degree of uncertainty that exists around the edges (especially with tribunal proceedings). There remains apparently different schools of thought and this may leave a barrister in grave regulatory peril. Stacey Widdison was open and honest about this fast-moving and difficult area, and if she could not provide black and white rules as they don’t exist, she provided clear and useful guidance, very well taught.

Stacey Widdison who conducted the course with us was excellent. Very knowledgeable and approachable. She had a very practicable and friendly approach and she often drew from her own experiences.
Stuart Stevens
Good trainer experienced in public access work. Did NOT simply read through the material but actively invited questions and comments and gave full and helpful answers to queries.
