    Probably about merging the two professions to one, the advantages and disadvantages from the idea.

    The Courts and Legal Services Act 1990.
    The Access to Justice Act 1999.

    Hey, could we debate this in a different thread or would you guys mind posting your essays on the topic (or if you're afraid someone might plagiate you, send them to me by e-mail)? I'm doing Law at university in Germany and I'd like to know more about the professions of solicitors and barristers, their differences, their training etc.

    The way it works over here is, we believe that all members of the legal profession should have a largely uniform training in order for them to be competent in the greatest number of areas. The legal training stage is the same for every Law graduate, you get to work with attorneys, prosecutors and judges as well as in the administration. At the end of it, everyone can potentially become a judge. Of course only the best make it that far and our system has been criticised for training primarily towards the office of a judge, although most graduates will end up as attorneys. My Dean has explained this system by the wish to have high-standard training for all members of the legal profession, rather than a fairly narrow attorney training and a more rounded training for judges.

    What do you guys think? I think it'd be interested to compare the strengths and weaknesses of both systems...

    Fair enough, but since the issue was raised here, I thought I'd post here first...

    For relatively recent case material the best place is probably the British and Irish Legal Information Institute website at www.bailii.org. This site has transcripts of cases going back up to almost 10 years. There will be cases dating to pre-Woolf reforms; should be suitable for your needs.

    Note that the only things the BAILII cases don't include are headnotes, introductions and submissions by counsel. For these you would have to get access to The Law Reports/All ER/WLR - I doubt your school/college has these collections or online subscriptions to websites that do.

    You're probably better off asking someone who has already graduated and/or are on the BCL course themselves.

    You can only find judgments and summaries of cases because this is what lawyers need. If you are saying transcripts as in what is available to appellant judges to read up on about on what happened to the case on trial then you might have to ask a member of court staff. Court cases can be recorded either by a big reel thing or are typed up. I believe this is what you see on TV. Is this it?

    Well this site might provide some further information and/or help http://www.courtservice.gov.uk/
