Today I was interviewed about what it is like to be a barrister. I realised I had a smile on my face for my whole answer. After twenty three years I still love the excitement of opening a new brief, coming to grips with a new set of issues, thinking about the best way to solve a client’s problems, working out to convince a judge of my client’s case, and – of course – appearing in court and arguing matters. Every day is different as I move from conferences to researching law to drafting advices to negotiating settlements and – of course again – to going to court and doing my best to win my case. How many people have that smile on their face after 23 years in the one job? Aha, indeed! I am in the right place.
