DIFF. between barrister and solicitor?

Difference between a barrister and a solicitor?

The legal profession in Britain is divided into two branches: barristers (called ‘advocates’ in Scotland) and solicitors.

Solicitors undertake legal business for individual and corporate clients, while barristers advise on legal problems submitted through solicitors and present cases in higher courts. Certain functions are common to both – for example, the presentation of cases in lower courts. Barristers must pass professional examinations before being called to the Bar (Barristers are known collectively as the Bar), and they must then serve an apprenticeship with a qualified barrister for one year.

Solicitors must also pass professional examinations and serve a two-year period of apprenticeship, called ‘articles’, in a solicitor’s office. Once qualified in this way, a newly admitted solicitor is supervised for three years.
