This essay presents part of a study of the office and persona of the jurisprudent, and in particular, the jurisprudent of London (if such an office exists and if it is not in abeyance).1 Writing in the somewhat neglected traditions of office and training in the conducts of life, draws attention to the dignities, obligations, privileges and rights that are taken up by a jurisprudent when they enter into institutional and public life.
