General comparison of the legal system of England and Iran
the legal system of England
Legal professions in England and Wales are divided into two separate branches in the legal system, solitaire lawyers and barrister lawyers.
To become a barrister or solicitor you need to study law, but you do not necessarily need to study at university. Undergraduate students who want to study law school later do not need to take all the regular theoretical exams.
Training and organizing
Barrister advocacy requires membership in one of the four London court academies.
The academies support barrister lawyers and law students through educational activities, lunch and dining facilities, access to shared rooms and gardens, and the provision of various grants and scholarships.
One of the main tasks of these academies is to connect barrister lawyers to the Bar Association. Anyone wishing to study law must join one of the academies, and these academies alone have the power to summon students to the bar.
