It’s not all about the law. Experience as much of university life as you can; make friends, pursue random and exotic hobbies (even if you only try them once), broaden your horizons and your mind at every opportunity. You only get to do this once. Make sure you enjoy it.

There may well be reasoned arguments for reforming immigration and asylum law. But any approach to legal reform premised on aggravating your political enemies and accompanied by unevidenced whines of “judicial activism” is not reasoned.

Yeah yeah, nice try “Alison”. We know the truth. Absolute scandal that DCI Jane Tennison would gaslight that poor defendant.

“Do you want to be a Barrister? Can you dehydrate yourself in a sweaty exam room? Can you stare at a screen for 5 hours non-stop while pissing in a bucket?” Call me old fashioned, but the Bar’s present advertising campaign is a bit shit.

Today I got sacked by a client because I “looked like a copper”. So that was good. I might speak to my mortgage company and offer them payment that “looks like money” next month.

That blogpost also wilfully distorts what the Henriques report said. Regrettably this is becoming something of a theme.

Have been physically dragged to Southwark Crown court today for a mention to fix, for no good reason. Perfect candidate for phone/video hearing. Court aircon isn't working, and I'm sweating in robes and wig, plus all the transmission risk Why why? What's the point?

Just what is going on with the farcical, unfair examinations for this year’s Bar students?
