What is the difference between a solicitor and a barrister?


This article explains the difference between a solicitor and barrister.

Lawyer is an umbrella term for both solicitors and barristers.

Barristers are lawyers who specialize in advocating for clients in Court. Barristers have expertise and knowledge in particular areas of law and Court procedure and etiquette which I have a deep respect for. Sometimes they wear wigs and gowns (depending on the Court).
