I did some searching on the internet but interestingly the Macquarie dictionary provides quite good definitions.
Lawyer: noun 1. someone who is professionally qualified to practise law in any capacity (whether a judge, barrister, solicitor, or a teacher of law).
Solicitor: noun 2. a member of that branch of the legal profession whose services consist of advising clients, representing them before the lower courts and preparing cases for barristers to try in the higher courts.
Another word mystery now cleared up for me.
