A recent question apparently mischaracterises the role of a barrister as "merely to study their instructions and perhaps an exhibit bundle that is readily prepared from them and then to draw on their knowledge in presenting arguments to the court during an appearance which is inherently confined to daytime working hours of the court."

If this is an inaccurate portrayal of barristers' roles, then what is a better description of what they do?

  • I assumed that a myriad stuff would come up explaining the distinction at a very shallow surface level ("Bs appear in court, usually instructed by Ss", but much more verbose). This question is specifically referenced to the previous one. Mar 6 at 13:55
