Just back from Melbourne, where I was in trial for the whole of last week.
It was unusual, these days, to wear a wig for a whole week. Most places in Australia dispense with them for civil matters. Then again, Victoria is one of the few places (the only place?) where solicitors sit with their backs to the bench. And for that matter, where the Tipstaff calls out, “God Save the Queen” at the beginning of every session.
Anyway, I am off to Alice Springs tomorrow morning. Back on Friday. Email contact might well come and go in the meantime.
