You don't know what it's like to stand in a court room yet though .
Non courtroom work is mostly paralegals and you could also be an arbitrator.
Very limited courtroom work would be commercial/corporate solicitors.
Limited courtroom work would be chancery barristers.
Semi-limited courtroom work would be commercial barristers.
Mediocre courtroom work is probably everything else, except criminal solicitors and barristers, which require heavy court room work.
Oh yeah, you could just become an academic. No court work required, just a constant stream of paper work.
And one more thing that just popped into my head. There are going to be several thousand solicitors working in WHSmith, thanks to a new law about legal partnerships, so they will most likely just be giving legal advice, and may not have as much court room appearances as other jobs.
