I've been wondering about the difference between barrister's job, attorney's and solicitor's. Cound anyone briefly introduce the differences?
The practical examples would be appreciated. Furthermore, how does it look in Poland? Do we have the divison for those three kinds?

All the information quoted after Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary:
Lawyer is a general term for a person who is qualified to advise people about the law, to prepare legal documents for them and/or to represent them in a court of law. In England and Wales, a lawyer who is qualified to speak in the higher courts of law is called a barrister. In Scotland a barrister is called an advocate. In AmE attorney is a more formal word used for a lawyer and is used especially in job titles: district attorney . . . Solicitor is the BrE term for a lawyer who gives legal advice and prepares documents, for example when you are buying a house, and sometimes has the right to speak in a court of law. Im AmE solicitor is only used in the titles of some lawyers who work for the government: Solicitor General.
