That's how it's in the UK:

from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barrister

A solicitor is an attorney, which means they can act in the place of their client for legal purposes (as in signing contracts), and may conduct litigation by making applications to the court, writing letters in litigation to the client's opponent and so on.

A barrister is not an attorney and is usually forbidden, either by law or professional rules or both, from "conducting" litigation. This means that while the barrister speaks on the client's behalf in court, the barrister does so when instructed by a solicitor. 

It's always good to know how to choose a lawyer in different countries, and if possible, in different languages. One never knows ...
