Harry Mount

Not quite I think:

There\’s a lawyers\’ saying about people such as Heather Mills who represent themselves in court – the client who chooses himself as his lawyer is a fool.

Isn\’t the phrase rather, he who chooses to represent himself has a fool for a lawyer?

  1. Not quite that either. The usual formulation (and the pithiest, because it ignores political correctness over gender) is:

    ‘A man who chooses to be his own lawyer has a fool for a client.’

    Tim adds: Thanks for that.
