Question for barristers in UK!

I'm reading Zadie Smith's _NW_ right now set in London. I don't understand the references to the young lawyers speaking of being "tenants" or "tenancy."

Sorry, I'm an American and don't understand the differences in training to become a lawyer in UK.
So in _NW_ there are young lawyers talking about being a tenant. I don't think it has to do with their living arrangements. And is there a difference between a barrister and a lawyer? And what's pupillage? And do all lawyers in the UK wear the wig in court? Thanks
