What a barrister does
In simple terms, a barrister is your voice in court. Barristers act on the instructions of their clients, specialise in advocacy and use their skills, expertise and knowledge to present your case in the best possible way.
A barrister will often be instructed by a solicitor, but can now also be instructed by individuals, to advise on specific legal issues and to prepare legal documents to enable claims to be brought and applications to be made in the civil and family courts.
