What is another term for "outsider"? As far as someone who isn't in a certain field, and wouldn't have the knowledge that an "insider" would?

Update:

A thesaurus/ thesaurus website hasn't helped me, because I am looking for a more specific version of the word, but can't think of what that word would be, which is why I asked on here.

    The usual term is "layman". Here's an example sentence:

    The defendant, or in layman’s terms, the person who is accused of the crime, entered the courtroom.

    There are many possibilities. Two of the most common are detached and excluded.

    I checked thesaurus.com (which is an excellent site for when you need an alternative word) and this is what the site came up with.
