    Junior Junior - Our baby barrister blogger slowly comes to grips with the mysteries of the bar.

    Procrustes - The columnist who also blogs.

    Theodora - Theodora was married to Justinian, and despite a shaky start in life now runs the empire like Mrs Thatcher.

    We'd happily induct you into the blawging hall of fame if you wanted to unpack a few burning issues. Contact the Ed. for further and better particulars.
