Having worked in law in 3 different countries, I can firmly say that lawyers in the UK are NOT honest.And before any of you start piping up about how straight and narrow you are - what's on your timesheet today? What did you pad? You ALL do it, and yes, it's wrong. That kind of behaviour only grows in boldness over time until one day you're appointed a judge as a reward!
