The Roll of Practising Barristers is a register of all barristers entitled to provide legal services in the State.
Under section 134 (1) of the Legal Services Regulation Act 2015, every person who has been called to the Bar of Ireland and who intends to provide legal services as a barrister must apply to the Legal Services Regulatory Authority to have their name entered on the Roll.
Under section 136 of the Act, it is a criminal offence for a person to provide legal services as a practising barrister if their name and certain additional information is not on the Roll of Practising Barristers.
The application form for entry to the Roll can be found in the Roll of Practising Barristers page of this website along with a number of guidance notes.
The LSRA reminds any practising barrister who intends to provide legal services and has not yet applied for entry to the Roll that they should do so immediately.
Practising barristers who wish to update their entry on the Roll may do so by sending an email to [email protected].
The roll as at 19 March 2020 can be found here.
