A Life of H.L.A. Hart

This chapter details H. L. A. Hart's preparations to become a barrister and the start of his legal practice. By the time of his graduation, Herbert had already preparing to qualify as a barrister. The Bar provided nothing in the way of formal training: it was simply a matter of equipping oneself with the knowledge necessary to pass the entry examinations. From the very beginning of his student career, Herbert had entertained an ambition to follow up his classics degree with an undergraduate degree in law based on just one further year's study. Spurred on by his brilliant success in his finals, and by the story of another student who had gained a First in a year, Herbert set out to match this achievement.
