Legal pic of the day

Wait… what?


This sign spotted in Oxford Combined Court’s robing room encourages lawyers to switch off the lights and save energy.

However, with HM Courts and Tribunals Service’s ever-shrinking budget it appears that an actual light switch has already been deemed an unnecessary luxury.

Thanks to the barrister who sent us this in. Please keep them coming to

Probably what has happened is that motion sensors have been installed and the old light switch has been replaced with a blank plate, but the electrician (or anyone else) hasn’t bothered to remove the sign.

I love the motion sensors in all of the conference rooms at Leicester Crown Court; being sat in a room with crazy, dangerous people who you are advising are about to serve prison sentences is made more exciting by the lights going out every 2 minutes followed by frantic arm-waving and a check to see whether you’ve been shanked.
