Ruling by the Dean of Faculty

Please note that where a member of the FDRS is appointed to act as described above through a solicitor, the fees of that Member will normally be rendered through Faculty Services Ltd under the The Faculty of Advocates Revised Scheme 2017 (pdf icon PDF download)(237KB) for the accounting for and recovery of counsel's fees issued by the authority of the Faculty of Advocates or any amended or replacement Scheme in force at the time of appointment.

Where the person engaging the services of a Member of the FDRS is not a solicitor, fees will still normally be rendered through Faculty Services Ltd. Paragraph 3.1 of the Direct Access to Advocates: Standard Terms of Instruction will apply.
