    What are the advantages

    For solicitors, pointless unless you want to transition into teaching/academia or you're bored.

    For barristers, the work life is more akin to an academic, so having a PhD can be useful. Some people have a PhD in another area, the eternal students, who transition into law. Others have a PhD in law and then try the bar. Others will be at the bar already and take a PhD part-time. The bar attracts intellectual freaks, particularly at the top end. They do it for their own enjoyment largely.
