What is a Solicitor?
A solicitor is a qualified legal practitioner. They are arguably the largest branch of qualified lawyers. Solicitors can practise in all areas of law but specialise 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.
