position Lawyer/ Lagos Mainland



Lawyers/Barristers are specialists in advocacy and represent individuals or organizations in court. They are independent sources of legal advice and can advise clients on their case. Generally, they are hired by solicitors to represent a case in court and only become involved once advocacy before a court is needed. They plead the case on behalf of the client and the client's solicitor. However, members of the public can go directly to a barrister to ask for advice and representation in court.

Barristers usually specialist in particular areas of law such as criminal law, chancery law (estates and trusts), commercial law, entertainment law, sports law and common law, which includes family, housing and personal injury law.

Most barristers work on a self-employed basis, while others work in government departments or agencies. An increasing number of employed barristers work in private and public organizations, such as charities.

Self-employed barristers work in offices called chambers, and may have their own office or share one with other barristers.

The area of a barrister's practice will largely determine the balance and emphasis of these activities.

the work of a criminal barrister is likely to involve a lot of advocacy in court;
a family law barrister may be representing clients in court in a contact dispute or divorce case, but may also be involved in mediation as a way of avoiding the need to go to court;
barristers practicing chancery/commercial law are generally in court far less than those in other practice areas and instead spend more time undertaking drafting and advisory work.

Employed barristers undertake similar activities for one company or client. At more senior levels, they may also become involved with the development of legal policy and strategy.
