Today I am talking to Jonathan Maskew and Bruce Webster, of myBarrister about the firm and the concept and practice of Direct Access to barristers.

”myBARRISTER is a new online service that gives people and businesses direct access to the specialised skills of barristers, helping them resolve legal issues, defend against prosecution, take legal action or simply providing specialist legal advice on a particular situation.”

  1. Excellent, interesting podcast – as usual. Answered a lot of questions.

    One extra question which might have been interesting to ask Messrs Maskew and Webster – why has the price of registration to mybarrister dropped from £1200 to £500 almost overnight?

    Also, are they seriously suggesting that if they were inundated by young, relatively inexperienced barristers willing to cough up, they would actually think twice about signing them up?
