When your tricky case breaks for (a long) lunch and you pop over from the law courts to the Wig and Pen for a sandwich and a pint, and you see your and the other side's barristers having lunch with the judge, you just have to rely on their sense of ethics.
Is it true that one barrister might be prosecuting a case that another barrister in the same chambers is defending?
