Barristers, door tenants, associates – what do these mean?

A barrister (sometimes also referred to as ‘counsel’) is a specialist legal adviser and courtroom advocate, who has undergone lengthy academic and vocational training and been called to the Bar.

A door tenant is also a barrister but one who is also affiliated to, and practises out of, another chambers.

A professional associate is usually either a qualified lawyer (a barrister called to the Bar, or other legal adviser, advocate or consultant, but qualified in a non-UK jurisdiction) or a legal academic.
