Mind Maps!

I have a thing for mind maps (or concept maps). Due to a bout of influenza that laid me low for 3 weeks years ago during law school I had to sit a closed book contract exam 5 months after I studied the subject. Mind maps got me through. I am progressively adding some recent mind maps (mostly focused on education) to a new page.

My friends on Twitter had a discussion regarding the nomenclature used to describe lawyers. I wrote about this in another article (see previous post). This started a parallel discussion about the difference between a “barrister” and a “solicitor”.

So, what kind of barrister work might lead to a negligence claim? I thought it would be useful to look at this from a professional indemnity insurer’s point of view.
