        It was thought that fusion between the two professions would just gradually happen, or that the Bar might just die out with solicitors having the right of first access to client and also being able to perform the advocacy as well.

As times change, those coming into the legal profession may take advantage of the opportunities to practice law from both angles granted to them by the higher powers and it will gradually becomes acceptable and the legal professions will fuse in a natural way. But it would not be fair if the current practising solicitors and barristers are forced into altering their profession because the legal system says so.
