When legal advice is needed, in a personal or professional capacity, the expertise available in the UK legal servcices sector is world-renowned.
According to the Bar Standards Board, there were just over 17,000 practicing barristers in the UK in 2020.
Traditionally engaged by a solicitor on behalf of a client needing representation (though fairly recent changes to legal practice mean that, in theory, barristers can seek or accept instructions directly from a client), barristers are expected to have detailed knowledge and high skill in both their area of the law and of the courts and the advocacy process.
Of course, while most barristers are self-employed they work within a set of Chambers through which a range of services are provided to the individual barristers, including accommodation and, for many, IT services.
What this means to you
If you’re a barrister, a chambers, or provide legal services or work closely with barristers or solicitors, you’ll probably depend on technology. Regulatory requirements and codes of conduct mean that data storage services need to be robust and compliant. Secure communications with courts and government agencies need email systems to be configured correctly, and a strong cyber security posture. Client files need to be available when you need them, and be configurable to prevent unauthorised access.
