I don’t know if Barristers Bürovorsteher is a good translation of a barrister’s clerk. John Flood (whose downloadable book on the subject I mentioned earlier), which he is following up with an updated study, mentions them in his blog twice this week, here and here. I liked the description of the clerk as the person who guards the priesthood.
It was only recently that I noticed the pictures of Pekingese on John’s site. Pekingese are much underestimated. There is one that lives in a tiny pub round the corner here, named after him, and is very much in charge of the neighbourhood.
