We will go deeper into the English legal profession in a later blog post, but basically there are two types of lawyers in the UK: solicitors and barristers. Usually, you cannot see a barrister without having seen a solicitor first, which makes this office strangely wonderful as it allows the general public to deal directly with barristers.
The other wonderful thing about this place is that it is so different from where most barristers in London are based, which are these beautiful self-contained villages in the centre of the city.
The second photograph was taken outside Boston Magistrates' Court in Lincolnshire and shows a pile of law books throwin into a skip.
Law books cost a lot of money and they are undoubtedly still relevant to cases today, so maybe the court has moved on-line, or maybe they are thinking of doing something else? We know a few Legal English teachers who would love those books!
