Written in the tradition of James Herriot and Richard Gordon, here are all the wildly funny ups and downs of would-be Rumpole Charlotte Hunter’s apprenticeship at the Middle Temple.  The Law is an unrelenting taskmaster whose only consistent feature is its infinite capacity to surprise, being full of eccentric characters and the domination of medieval chivalry and male infallibility (!) – she found herself dashing from one magistrate’s court to the next, defending a flasher in a knee length mackintosh, then an ornamental bird fancier, and all the time managing to retain her equilibrium and her sense of humour.
