What is a Solicitor?
A Solicitor is a qualified legal practitioner. Solicitors are arguably the largest branch of qualified lawyers. A Solicitor can practise in all areas of law but specialises typically in one or two areas in accordance with training undertaken. As a result, a Solicitor does not need to obtain further qualifications to practise in a new area, just complete necessary training so as to have the level of skill required to undertake the work in accordance with the Solicitors Code of Conduct.
