    Heavens, a sloppy appearing barrister could end up sending one to the gallows for not wearing proper attire. Nice form over function but I shouldn’t comment on Brit culture. Anyway, everyone should hang smartly if they must hang at all.

    “A list of prohibited activities was issued to students of the vocational school”

    Which vocational school? Do you mean ‘vocation’ or are you referring to a specific training school?

    “The assessment is part of the Bar Professional Training Course to be admitted to the Law Society.”

    The Law Society represents solicitors, not barristers; barristers are regulated by the Bar Council (and their particular Inn of Court).

      Hi Martin. Have amended to say it’s a London law school as it says BPP University further down. The Law Society was included in a recent edit but will correct.

        Thanks. I’m also tempted to comment on the ambiguity of saying barristers should wear “nothing above the knee”, but I think the context makes it clear!
