    And following the law, the lawyers 😁

      • The first proper lawyers arose among the Norse of Iceland, didn’t they? That was an awfully long time after the Code of Hamurrabi.

        • Was it them? I think you’ll find there’s an earlier origin (and no, I’m not counting classical orators and scribes). We’ll get to it, don’t worry. And yes, it was an awfully long time after Hammurabi!

          • I’m going to guess the Israelites, because the Bible talks about widespread barratry and perjury. “No one brings suit justly, no one pleads honestly.” – Isaiah, I forget the chapter and verse.
