About Direct Access Portal

DAP provides direct access to barristers without the delay and expense of applying through solicitors. It is the official Bar Council portal with the definitive, up to date list of qualified collaborating Direct Access barristers.

You can use DAP to locate and contact a direct access barrister to obtain legal advice or to help you with any aspect of your legal case including representing you in court hearings.

We have also included Mediators and Arbitrators. They provide a vital alternative to dispute resolution as using the courts can be time consuming and expensive. We have included them in Direct Access Portal to give you an opportunity to consider all your options to solve your legal problem.
