British legal education is often highly practical courses give the opportunity for close interactions with both professors and practitioners of the country.
In England there are two categories of practicing lawyers: solicitors (solicitor) and barristers (barrister). The solicitor is the first person to whom I appeal with the legal issue. He can act as adviser or advocate in the lower courts. In many cases, the solicitor prepares the materials for barrister, a lawyer of the highest rank, who can give specialized advice or represent clients in higher courts.
