At a recent speech given at the Queen Mary Legal Advice Centre's first anniversary, the former attorney general Lord Goldsmith reminisced about his early days as a lawyer.
After setting up his own pro bono legal advice centre for teenagers in Bethnal Green, Goldsmith decided he had to find a way to get down with the local kids.
"Our idea was that I wouldn't frighten these teenagers by coming in a lawyer's suit and tie with a briefcase, but come in jeans as a helper at the weekly disco," he explained.
If the thought of Goldsmith in jeans doing a spot of 'sad dad' dancing is not enough to make you laugh, try the image of him DJing. Yes, that's right, Goldsmith turned his hand to the wheels of steel.
