Most of you will recall, when I remind you of the fact, that the system of legal training as followed in most of the European countries and I think perhaps in most of the world is that early, in his training period a law student decides or perhaps it is decided for him by his instructors upon their appraisal of his ability, whether or not he should follow the course of training which will fit him to become a lawyer or an advocate or whatever he may be called in that particular country, or whether or not he should become a judge.
