Saint David of Clementi

Sir David Clementi

At the conference on Regulating and Deregulating Lawyers in the 21st Century at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies on June 3 and 4, I celebrated the beatification of Sir David Clementi.

I pointed out to the audience that each day I prostrated myself before my shrine of Saint David for he has wrought unto us a great industry of legal profession studies. We scholars, who toil in the soil prepared for us by Saint David, ought truly to give thanks to his great works. 

The Clementi Review is our bible, the Legal Services Act our book of prayer, and the Legal Services Board our ministry.
