IANAL - so I can't be certain - but it would not surprise me in the
slightest if the majority of British lawyers were NOT members of the
relevant bar association.
I am not aware of any law in Finland regulating giving legal advice. There is,
however, a (very recently instated) legal requirement for anybody representing
someone else at trial to be legally trained. The title "asianajaja" (one of
the Finnish terms referring to a lawyer) is also legally restricted to only
members of the bar association.
I think bar association members are called barristers - and most lawyers
are not barristers but solicitors.
