Law and Disorder : Confessions of a Pupil Barrister Paperback
by Tim Kevan
It is BabyBarista's first day as a pupil barrister.
He has just one year to win, by foul means or fair, the sought-after prize of a tenancy in chambers.
Competition is fierce: there's TopFirst, who has a prize-winning CV and an ego to match; BusyBody, a human whirlwind on a husband hunt; and wide-eyed Worrier, buckling under the weight of the world.
Armed with a copy of Sun Tzu's "The Art of War", BabyBarista launches a no-holds barred fight to the death of double-dealing, dirty tricks and a healthy dose of back-stabbing.
Part Rumpole, part Flashman, BabyBarista opens a window onto the Machiavellian and frequently absurd ways of working life.

Review by wonderperson
This book is well worth reading whether you are have an interest in Law or not. <br/> A humorous behind-the-scenes story of Pupil Barristers, their Pupil Masters and all manner of antics going in Chambers as the Pupils slug it out for Tenancy.
