    Life's like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get.

    That's the best darn piece of advice ah've ever heard, and I didn't need no lawyer to give it to me none.

    This is just another example of The Lawyer's shockingly casual Communist approach to life, associating high incomes and wealth with stupidity. It is outrageous to make such a claim.

    Also did you notice they could not resist saying that journalists were more clever these days? I suppose they are all getting paid less than in 1950 and living in a bloody hippy commune together. Astonishing.

    The Lawyer's keen news sense remains intact - publishing all the news from 1970 as it breaks...

  • The solution: Recruit Law students with solid Law degrees from good universities!

    That's because in the 50s, only law students could become lawyers but now any Tom Denis and Harry can become a lawyer with any old degree or by having a rather pompous family member who is a lawyer and weaving their way into the legal system which might I add, used to be for those with the brains. It's a wonder that anyone still bothers to do 3 year law degrees. Also, there is a real need to standardise what is learnt in all the universities and Law colleges. So much emphasis is placed on getting a 2:i or 1st from Oxbridge. Such qualifications certainly improve the CV but not the IQ.

    Greatstory - You must be one of those stupid lawyers the research is talking about - it's people born in 1970 who are now being measured. Dur!
    PS Athough obviously, the research is deeply flawed!

    I would love to see a journalist negotiate the terms of a simple, bilateral loan.

    The law employs, as it has always done, the finest minds in the City.
