Trial Lawyer Battle Royale: Barristers vs. Solicitors

Rumpole of the BaileyLawyers around the world have different perspectives and different beliefs regarding the art of trial advocacy and the role of trial lawyers.  Here’s an article I found at the UK’s Guardian.  The article itself isn’t the highlight — check out the comments section for some interesting insight into the role of barristers vs. solicitors, and the public’s opinion of lawyers in the UK.  As an outsider (I’m in the U.S. legal system), I found it interesting reading!
