The mental demands of advocacy are not limited to the waking hours – the weight of practitioners’ responsibilities and experiences also find expression in the landscape of their dreams, including:

·     The “forget your robes” dream (and its other popular variations, the “forget your trial binder/which case you are about to argue” dreams);

·     The “you’re not prepared and everyone is waiting for you” dream; and

·     The “you’re too late, you missed the trial” dream.
