German lawyers/Deutsche Juristen

At Obiter Dictum, Christian Säfken recently dipped a few toes in the murky waters of terms for German lawyers:

Anwalt ist nicht gleich Anwalt

He discusses: Jurist, Stud. iur., Cand. iur., Wirtschaftsjurist, Rechtskundiger, geprüfter Rechtskandidat, Diplom-Jurist, Volljurist, Rechtsanwalt, Patentanwalt, Syndikus, Justiziar, Fachanwalt. Keen commenters wish to add Assessor, Probericht, Sozius.

We might add Notar and Anwaltsnotar, Staatsanwalt, Amtsanwalt, Rechtspfleger, Rechtsbeistand, Verteidiger.

We could add the Swiss Advokat, Fürsprecher and Fürsprech.
