Difference of Lawyer vs. Attorney
Attorneys In Pretoria
What is the difference between a Lawyer and an Attorney?
When speaking about legal matters and legal professionals, the term “lawyers” comes up a lot. That is because the terminology “Lawyers” refers to a wide array of legal professionals. A lawyer can be anyone who has studied law and successfully attained a bachelor’s degree in Laws. According to South African law, if a lawyer has no additional qualifications or professional designations, he/she may not legally represent a client in court. They may act as a legal consultant giving legal advice, or as a policy advisor.
Attorneys, on the other hand, can specialize in different fields of law and, in certain circumstances, represent clients in a court of law. To become an attorney, you first need to complete your Bachelors in Law (LLB), followed by a form of internship with a practicing attorney for a specified period of time, after which you need to write a Board Examination. Should you pass, you can apply at the high court to be admitted as an attorney.
Covers private law relations in respect of particular types of legal objects that are corporeal or incorporeal, as well as public law relations with a proprietary character, and the resultant rights and interests.
Commercial law pertains to legal principles applied in the world of business and applies to persons/entities who are engaged in business and commercial transactions.
The body of law that regulates family relationships. Family law includes marriage and divorce, the treatment of children, and other related economic matters.

A notary public (or notary or public notary) of the common law is a public officer constituted by law to serve the public in non-contentious matters usually concerned with estates, deeds, powers-of-attorney, and foreign and international business.
