Tulkinghorn has just caught wind of a rather massive faux pas occurring at one of the US’s finest London-based firms.
A rather hapless paralegal was required to write an essay as part of his paralegal course. Unfortunately for him, the essay was centred on a judgment by the revered Lord Bingham, and naturally Bingham was referred to throughout.
All went well, until the poor bloke spell-checked the entire thing without double-checking the results.

Methinks the young lad now and forever has Bingham’s moniker indelibly imprinted upon his brain.
