What is a Criminal Lawyer?

Criminal lawyers are specialists in defending people charged with a criminal offence. They are also known as criminal defence lawyers, and defence lawyers.

Criminal lawyers deal with the issues surrounding arrest, bail, a criminal investigation, criminal charges, sentencing, appeals and other post-trial issues.

Criminal law differs from civil law in that a higher burden of proof is required, such as beyond a reasonable doubt, rather than balance of probabilities. This means that the prosecution’s case must be very good in order for a conviction to be secured in a criminal court.

A criminal lawyer is someone who has completed an approved course of study of law, usually lasting a minimum of four years, and has then been licenced by the state in which they work to practice law. Often this licencing is carried out by a non-statutory body such as a bar or law society.

Criminal lawyers are also known as solicitors. Barristers are lawyers who can advocate on behalf of a client in a court room. In modern times the distinction between a barrister and a solicitor is not so defined, with most jurisdictions allowing solicitors to also advocate on behalf of a client.
