Barristers and Solicitors: Key Definitions and Areas of Practice

In general, there is unfounded confusion as regards the definition of barrister and solicitor. It is very important to establish the differences between the two of them, the scope of their work, etc.

 

First, a solicitor refers to as a qualified legal professional who provides expert legal advice and support to clients. These clients may be individuals, a group of people with a matter in common, private companies, or public organizations.

 

On the other hand, barristers generally provide specialized legal advice. In addition, they represent individuals and organizations in courts and tribunals. Generally, it is by means of written legal advice. Barristers have the exclusive right to hearing before the Chamber of the Lords. But also before The Court of Appeals, the High Court and the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council. They are members of one of the four Inns of Court. Consequently, they are subject to the supervision of the Senate of the Inns of Court. Clients need to hire a barrister through a solicitor. Moreover, a barrister does not personally involve with the parties of the case.

Unlike a barrister, a solicitor is an officer of the court, without a right to a hearing before the High Courts. A solicitor shares the right to a hearing with a barrister before the Trial Courts. As a matter of fact, a solicitor is in charge of issuing legal documents and providing legal assistance to clients. In addition, they contact a barrister in case a client needs legal representation before a court of law.

 

Moreover, barristers usually specialize in particular areas of law. For example, criminal law, Chancery law (estates and trusts), commercial law, entertainment law, sports law, and common law.
