I have been known to criticise programmes such as Judge John Deed (shurely Deed J, and why is he always on circuit, and what is a QB judge doing hearing family applications, and and) for slight inaccuracies in their depiction of life at the Bar and on the Bench. This morning I have finally realised that in truth, it's only my* professional life that is sadly lacking in drama:

Exhibit 1 Exhibit 2

Incidentally, am slightly perturbed by this "secretive world of millionaire lawyers". I must have missed all the memos.

I do recommend the latter article by the way, it includes a rare display of humour by the Mail in the caption to the last photo.

Heigh ho, back to the Scott Schedule. "Item 44, reinstatement of pigeon-netting..."

*Prompted by Frankie in comments, the emphasis in that sentence should lie on "my", there's little drama in the rest of my life atm either. Can't be arsed to redraft the sentence, I now have three applications tomorrow and the skeleton for one of them is going to be seriously late.

I love the shocked comment in the Daily Mail that it's the love across the class divide which is the real shocker, "Senior members of chambers simply do not have affairs with their clerks."

Though, with regard to a certain Chancery barrister who has recently left an IP set for a general chancery set, I believe that a man who has a breach with his clerk never does quite recover his position in society...

At the same time I can confide in you how today was wrecked by the back office at the RCJ transposing a matter number between two files and hellish confusion ensuing (I nearly sent a Howler to the senior partner of another firm of solicitors accusing them of three separate breaches of the code of ethics on the basis of the mess that it turned out the court had caused).

Re Exhibit 1, that will stir up the Birmingham Bar, which - as was explained to me during my stay at CSC last week - is close-knit to the point of incestuousness.

As for Exhibit 2, I will observe with a degree of schadenfreude, for reasons I would be happy to bitch about explain over a drink at some point.

There is more than one way to parse 'it's only my professional life that is sadly lacking in drama'. I read this and wondered what on earth was going on in your personal life.
