Typical lawyer background - private and privileged education instilling a deep sense of worth over and above 'normal' people. Easy entrance to a university of their choice (often Durham, Exeter or Bristol, most being unable to make the Oxbridge grade despite a fortune spent on education) to study and party for four years, one at law school. Easy entrance to a law firm of their choice (often using daddy's old chums or just ticking all those boxes beloved of HR) and then watch as the pounds flow in for what is an average days work using less than impressive intelligence but great 'social' skills ie, dealing with people who have the exact same background, both at their firm and on the other side of transactions, and indeed their clients who are also public school educated. THIS PRODUCES GROUP THINK, on a huge and detrimental scale. Lawyer has kids, who are sent to same public school as daddy and the whole cycle starts again. This set up does nothing to promote the best, just the wealthy. It does nothing to promote the most intelligent, just the wealthy. And it does nothing to stop greed, it just enriches already wealthy people. Welcome to social mobility Britain!
