What is it about rowing and the law? James Cracknell, a member of the coxless four who paddled to gold in the Sydney Olympics, is due to start a law conversion course at the College of Law on his return.
Louis Attrill, one of the rowing eight that won the blue riband event for Britain for the first time since 1912, was a part-time student on the College of Law postgraduate diploma last year.
And, just in case you may have forgotten, Johnny Searle, who won gold for rowing at Barcelona in 1992, was also at the College of Law. Clearly these lawyers like to stick their oars in.
