A key worker is a worker whose services are essential to the functioning of the police, health, justice and education sectors. During the Covid-19 crises, the Ministry of Justice announced that the following members of the legal profession were categorised as key workers:

  • solicitors advocates required to appear before a court/tribunal;
  • solicitors acting in relation to the execution of wills;
  • any legal professional required to support the administration of justice (especially in relation to ongoing or imminent court/tribunal hearings); and
  • solicitors (and barristers) advising people who live in institutions or are deprived of their liberty.
