The spectacle of so many lawyers all in one place set many minds thinking alike. (And not all about how the world would react to a meteorite strike.) One debate was over the correct collective noun: a gaggle, perhaps, or a flock? Apparently apes congregate in a ‘shrewdness’, which Obiter likes the best. The event was also noted for the sparkiness of Twitter feeds. @MatthewJDenney reflected: ‘Was asked last night if anything worse than 7,000 drunk lawyers. Yes, 7,000 sober ones.’
