What does the job title "Anwalt" stand for?

The occupational titles "Anwalt" or "Rechsanwalt" (Attorney at Law) are legally protected and require a swiss university degree as well as an additional formation as Attorney at Law. The title "Fachanwalt SAV Arbeitsrecht" (Certified Specialist SBA Labour Law) which is issued by the Swiss Bar Association to Attorneys at Laws having passed additional exams in labour law, is protected as well. However, denominations such as "Jurist", "Rechtsberater" (Legal Counsel), "Rechtsvertreter" or "Rechtskonsulent" are not protected at all.
