|Royal Court of Justice - Strand St|
Took a London Walk called
"Legal & Illegal London"
check it out at:
Tour Guide (Angela) shared:
(the "Big Wigs")
preside over court
belong to one of four "legal societies"
(Middle Temple, Inner Temple, Lincoln's Inn
or Gray's Inn)
deal with more complex legal (high profile or expensive) court cases
don't have to belong to a "legal society"
deal with divorce, simple criminal cases etc
Each legal society has its own courtyard for their barristers
(including dining facilities, legal library, & offices)
the courtyards are "drop-dead" beautiful, quiet & difficult to find!?!
Angela took us to see...
Inner Temple & Middle Temple
barristers & their families
are invited to attend the Temple Church
(sound familiar? remember reading about the
Knights Templar in the Da Vinci Code?)
With all this "legal-speak"
my eyes were starting to glaze...
but as we rounded the corner ~
the tour redeemed itself...
Judges & barristers purchase
their wigs & robes
from this shoppe...AND
you know the term
this is what the
"Big Wigs" (judges)
wear in court
(high legal attorneys)
(in high school, any hairdo
that was curled & off your shoulders
was called an "UP-DO")
I'm just ITCHING to wear this!
(actually, thinking about wearing
on a humid or foggy day in London
makes me itch)
All this "legal mumbo-jumbo"
is making me tired...
this cute pub sign
...if you need legal assistance,
make sure you pick a
to win your case!!
