The job of a barrister is to offer legal advice and court representation to those requiring it. Although solicitors are the first port of call for most members of the public or businesses, barristers are able to offer more specialist help should their case go to court.
Most barristers are not employed by a company or organisation (there are some positions working for the government in the Government Legal Service and Crown Prosecution Service), but are instead self-employed, working alongside other barristers from a set of Chambers. This means that many barristers are reliant upon their skills at attracting new clients to secure their work.
