School appeals seem more popular than ever this year. Only a week after launching his own school appeals website, barrister Ian Jones is receiving dozens of calls from anxious parents who have been refused a place for their child at their preferred school. Ian says "I've been asked about everything from nursery admissions to judicial review, as well as lots of calls about primary and secondary school admission appeals." Ian Jones is one of a growing number of barristers at New Walk Chambers who carry out work directly for members of the public under the direct access scheme. The direct access barristers at New Walk Chambers are: Robert Rees, Ruth Manning, Ian Jones, Simon Reed and Karl Prosser.
