In Australia, there isn’t a significant difference between a solicitor and a lawyer. Both terms generally refer to legal professionals who can provide advice and represent clients in various legal matters. However, it is worth noting that the term ‘solicitor’ is more commonly used to describe those who primarily handle paperwork, contracts generally legal matters, or give legal advice outside of courtrooms while ‘lawyer’ can be an umbrella term for both solicitors and barristers (those who specialise in representing clients in courts).
