Member Registration

DAP Membership 

If you pay the annual Bar Representational Fee, and originally registered with the Public Access register of the Bar Council web site, you will have been automatically enrolled on DAP as it is now the official Bar Council portal for direct access barristers, mediators, and arbitrators. However, if you originally elected for your email address to be private this automatic transfer will not have occurred as we did not have the relevant permission to share your information elsewhere. If this is the case, or if you have recently registered with the Bar Council as DA qualified, please apply using the form below.

Unfortunately, for those who have not paid the BRF subscription you cannot be registered until you have done so.

The BRF costs £100 per annum or £8.34 per month by Direct Debit and has many other benefits including:

  • A monthly subscription to Counsel magazine (worth £93)
  • Unlimited copies of Certificates of Good Standing (otherwise £100 each)
  • Access to Xexec portal  which offers substantial discounts on everything from shopping at major supermarkets to holidays
  • Discounts on all training courses provided by the Bar Council (including those awarding CPD) and on many Bar Council events including the Annual Bar Conference.

If you have not paid the annual BRF but would like to know how, apply here.

If you wish to add another area of professional work (mediator/arbitrator) you can do this through your account page.
