Look inside the book:
Again, it is difficult to grasp fully the influence exercised through life by the barrister's Inn—that curious institution, with its five hundred years of tradition—voluntarily joined by him when a youth; where he has received his training; by which he has been called to the Bar and may be disbarred for cause, and upon the Benchers of which Inn he must naturally look as his exemplars, although the Lord Chancellor may be the nominal creator of King's Counsel and the donor of judge-ships. ...C.'s, indeed, are afforded their title in the reports—even in the newspapers—but nowhere does it appear that 'Leaders' are appointed by the judge of a particular equity court to 'take their seats' and practice before him exclusively, being associated in each case with 'Juniors,' who in turn have 'Devils' to prepare their cases; or that a leader may sever this relation and thereafter 'go special'; yet all these, and many other peculiar and inviolable customs, are handed down from one generation to another to be followed as if by instinct: and the profession would no more trouble the busy world with such matters than a dog would feel it necessary to explain that he turns thrice before lying down, simply because his wolfish ancestor did so in order to make a bed in the grass.
