TheStudentRoom message board removes barrister’s ill-judged quip … after we got a screenshot.
Yesterday afternoon an unnamed “pupil master” caused outrage among wannabe lawyers with a message board post in which he slammed the efforts of 86.6% of Bar hopefuls.
In addition to a range of highly smug musings delivered from the comfort of a position of power, the barrister’s post includes a gag about Jimmy Savile and “mitigating cicrumstances”.
So ill-judged is the line that TheStudentRoom has removed it. For the record, here is a screenshot of the original comment in all its glory.
Isn’t good judgement also something that chambers look for — and naturally take for granted among their own barristers?
