En el Reino Unido existen dos tipos diferentes de abogados: solicitors y barristers (estos últimos reciben el nombre de advocates en Escocia). Los solicitors defienden a sus clientes ante tribunales de menor importancia y se encargan de asuntos civiles tales como la compra o venta de propiedades, testamentos, divorcios o el cobro de deudas, aunque pueden ser contratados directamente por el cliente para que los representen en casos tanto civiles como penales. Por su parte, los barristers o advocates no tratan directamente con sus clientes sino que, en los asuntos legales particulares, asesoran solamente en aquellos casos que les son remitidos por los solicitors, ya que su formación va más bien dirigida para actuar ante el Tribunal Supremo.
