There are horses for courses and it is not clear which race track the learned professor is on. It is always the impression that England and Wales produce pragmatic practical lawyers rather than emphasising the rounding off of academic skills in the finishing schools. We are perhaps one of the few nations who not to append (or if so rarely) the title 'Dr' to lawyers in practice. Is there not also the risk that what is suggested in the article may lead to a cohort of provincial practitioners who are great in their backyard but viewed with suspicion and decidedly wobbley when they choose to take the train to the great smoke? And of course the' Little Wales' sentiment might shrink the pool of talent as Englanders worried at their lack of Welshness might steer well clear. Yaki da boyo!
