Look at the size of that one!


You would be forgiven for thinking the image above was taken in the departure lounge of Heathrow airport. But unfortunately, for those pictured anyway, this is not the start of a holiday.

Many Bar Professional Training Courses (BPTCs) kicked off this week, and once again TK Maxx has been busy flogging wheelie suitcases to aspiring members of the bar.

The photo — taken from inside a BPTC lecture theatre at City University Law School earlier this month — shows a number of students embracing the airport luggage-look to cart their notoriously heavy practitioners’ textbooks around campus.

Legal Cheek is particularly impressed with the student on the left. Thinking outside the box, the wannabe barrister — clearly keen on avoiding high London rental prices — has managed to purchase a suitcase large enough to live in. Great work.
