The Barrister is the one who goes into court. He speaks, the solicitor also goes into court, but NEVER speaks. If he has to inform the Barrister of something, he would write it down on a piece of paper, and slide it accross, or whisper.
In Ireland, there are two places in the Four Courts that only Barristers may go: The Law Library, and the Barristers Restaurant. Now I always wonder, why would anyone want to become a solicitor if they cannot enter those two places...
Barristers are not allowed to advertise. And a lot of the time cases are settled before they enter court. Solicitors usually earn more money, but it is more likely for a Barrister to "rise up the ranks" to judge etc...
"Hate that... I'm a Barrister, I can enter the Law Library and a special restaurant!"
"Do you want work, or not?"
"I suppose so..."
"If you´re really planning to sue the Koffee Bin, Inc.
you need an expert. I know a great bar-rister.
The word barrister becomes meaningless when used by people writing emails from email domains from anywhere except Nigeria, but claiming to be from Nigeria.
