    Hi bosun,

    barrister = in England, a legal practitioner whose function is similar to that of a U.S. Trial lawyer, although the barrister does not prepare the case from the start. His solicitor assembles the materials necessary for presentation to the court and settles cases out of court.

    solicitor = British lawyer who advises clients, represents them in the lower courts, and prepares cases for barristers to try in higher courts.
