Module 2 - Dispute Solving

Solicitors, Barristers, and Legal executives

The English legal system is unusual in having 2 legal professions; solicitors and barristers. Most legal professions have lawyers who although specialise they qualify in the same way. Historically solicitors represented by the LAW SOCIETY and barristers represented by the BAR COUNCIL reached an agreement to divide the legal work between themselves basically this gave solicitors sole right of access to clients and barristers sole rights of access to the courts. In recent years this division has been broken down, solicitors have increasing access to the courts while barristers have some access to clients.
