    Photograph, b/w. Gandhi attended the University of London from 1888-1891. After completing his studies he was a member of the bar, licensed to practice law. In order to learn about Indian lawhe set up a law office in Bombay. He struggled to find legal work to support his family, and after a disastrous appearance at a court case (in which he became so nervous when he had to speak to the court that he became tongue-tied and dizzy) he gave up trying to be a courtroom lawyer. In April 1893 he headed for Durban, South Africa where he had been hired by a law firm. His experiences with prejudice during this trip helped to define the course he would take for the rest of his life - analyzing segregation laws and fighting for the rights of Indian people. 14 Political Systems; 16 History. less
