Law and Disorder

If you have enjoyed reading parts of this blog and meeting the characters, you might enjoy reading the book in which I re-wrote BabyBarista’s first year in chambers and his fight for tenancy. It is published by Bloomsbury (of Harry Potter fame) and is called Law and Disorder. It was described by broadcaster Jeremy Vine […]

Day 249, week 50: BarristerBay

I mentioned the barrister TidySum a few months ago.  He has a nice little earner basically bringing in loads of papers and then getting them done by baby barristers for a small “devilling fee”  Well, in the last few weeks, pupils have been falling down like flies as they one by one either get taken […]

Day 246, week 50: PupilGeek

I think it might be all the stress of tenancy but the current crop of pupils around the bar really are outshining themselves in distraction techniques.  One of the more IT savvy of our group, let’s call himPupilGeek, recently started getting into the parallel online world which is SecondLife.  He’s clearly destined to be a […]

Day 242, week 49: HeyUp

Day 238, week 48: the folly

As the tenancy decision looms, I do have to question quite what I’m letting myself in for.  At the moment I’d give my right arm for a tenancy but I guess it might just be the nerves kicking in but a large part of me wonders what it’s all about.  This whole legal business.  It’s […]

Day 237, week 48: have a break

UpTights and OldSmoothie.  You’ve gotta love it.  They were at it again today.  You know it really wouldn’t surprise me if one day I came into chambers and discovered that they’d run off together.  Decided to settle their differences and go off into the sunset.  That love hate thing.  Well, maybe in a parallel universe […]

Day 236, week 48: JudgeJiggles

I don’t know what it is about being a barrister but it seems to have a peculiar effect on some of their voices.  Quite specifically, many of them seem to go much further back in the throat as soon as they start cross-examining with the TV barrister style line of “I put it to you […]
