Lawyers like talking, but not, it seems, when they're working in a library and the talking is done by students leaving lecture theatres. Now the Foster Cambridge Law Faculty, where terraces of the library have no acoustic separation from the spill spaces outside the lecture theatres, are to be modified, students inform me. Dr Kirsty Allen, secretary of the faculty, tells Astragal, that 'we're having work done over the summer . . . a vertical glass screen will separate the library from the lecture accommodation'. Peace breaks out.
