The conceits of the 'Johnny Come Latelies' in legal education
It is always a pleasure to be invited to 'guest' by my brother Charon QC, whose interest in matters legalo-philosophical and the rigours of academe is, to be generous, probably well past its sell-by date; an end hastened, ineluctably, by his taste for the grape, gin & mango juice and Marlboro cigarettes - hijacking his mind and his interests to the absurdities of the tabloids and the antics of academics and practitioners in what practitioners are still pleased to call the ‘legal profession'. I overlook, with some distaste, his use of a noun as a verb in his badly-typed email of 2.45am this morning. I am a guest. I do not 'guest'.
