The new default standard terms which members of Chambers will be offering where services are supplied to or at the request of solicitors (or other persons authorised and regulated by the Law Society or the SRA) will be the standard contractual terms 2012 prepared by the Bar Council.*
In the absence of any other agreement between you and the barrister these standard terms will govern the relationship between the barrister and the authorised person.
Nothing will change in the service provided on a day-to-day basis by reason of the adoption of those terms.
