Opening up internal discussion about next steps for legal services, Associate Director Jennifer Brennan presented the findings at the Bar Standards Board’s (BSB)* knowledge sharing session on 12th July.
The full report on how the provision of legal services is evolving was recently published.
Pye Tait Consulting was commissioned to find out about the range of different approaches used by barristers to deliver legal services, how they receive instructions, and to understand how delivery of legal services may change in the future. The work has provided the BSB with an evidence base to enable them to assess the risks and benefits associated with different approaches used by barristers to deliver legal services.
The research used a mixed-method approach, collecting and analysing primary and secondary sources of qualitative and quantitative data via desk-based research, a consultation workshop, an online survey of organisations involved in delivering or facilitating legal services by barristers, and in-depth telephone interviews.
