Legal Cheek talks… the bar and beyond

By on

Katie King and Tom Connelly chat about barrister turned personal trainer Eloise Le Santo and all things Judge Rinder

As the bank holiday weekend approaches, Legal Cheek’s Katie King and Tom Connelly cracked open a couple of cold ones and discussed the more popular legal news stories of the week.

First up, Eloise Le Santo. A single parent with two young children and no A-levels to her name, Le Santo went to university, bagged a first, and then landed a pupillage at one of the most prestigious commercial chambers in London.

Three years on, and now a personal trainer, Le Santos told Legal Cheek in an exclusive interview earlier this week that it was the best decision she’s ever made. But did she do the right thing?

In lighter news, criminal barrister Robert Rinder — now better known as Judge Rinder — revealed he will be competing in the BBC hit show Strictly Come Dancing. But having pursued a career in showbiz, can the 2 Hare Court tenant still be taken seriously as a barrister?
