What is the role of a Barrister in Court?

In serious criminal cases – most commonly jury trials – barristers are instructed by solicitors to advocate in court for the client.    

Why do you need a Barrister if you have already have a lawyer?

There are many reasons that solicitors and barristers in Sydney work together to represent clients. These include the combination allowing for the specialist knowledge that our solicitors have in preparing criminal cases, and the specialist advocacy that barristers provide on the day of bail, trial, or sentence proceedings. 

Of equal importance is that the combination of a barrister and solicitor allows clients to spend less money on legal fees. This is especially so for a firm such as Australian Criminal Law Group. With its significant resources clients are not charged barrister’s rates for the bulk of their criminal proceedings.

What is the difference between a barrister and a lawyer?

The difference between a barrister and a lawyer is that a barrister specialises in one particular area of the law.  Lawyers have a more board expertise.  The term lawyer is actually an umbrella term for solicitors and barristers.   A lawyer will instruct a barrister to appear in court on behalf of their client. 

Barristers are normally instructed by a clients lawyer when the case is particularly serious or complex.  Normally, a client wouldn’t contact or hire a barrister directly.   Barristers are briefed by the lawyers responsible for a clients case.
