Irwin Mitchell Real Estate team

Lawyers from Irwin Mitchell’s Real Estate team have got on their bikes to support the Canal & River Trust by tackling the charity’s mammoth 240-mile coast to coast challenge.

Held across three days last week, the Great British Bike Off started in Blackpool and saw riders make their way across Lancashire and the Yorkshire Dales – taking in sections of the leg of the Tour de France held in the region last year – to a finish in Scarborough.

All of the money raised by the cycling event goes towards supporting the work of Canal & River Trust, who will use the donation to conserve, restore and enhance canals and rivers or to educate people about them.

David Goy and Paul Barnard, associate solicitors from Irwin Mitchell’s Sheffield and Manchester-based Real Estate teams, went along for the ride and to support the charity, which is also a valued client of the firm.

Commenting on the challenge, David said: “We were delighted to get involved in this fantastic event, taking on some challenging and beautiful landscape while raising vital funds to support the brilliant work of the Canal & River Trust.

“We are very proud of our long-running relationship with the charity, which is involved in hugely important projects across England and Wales, and it was great to take part in this challenge for the second consecutive year.

“We’re already looking forward to getting involved again next year!”

The rise of the multi-disciplinary lawyer: A challenge for legal education

The legal profession has been on the receiving end of much hype regarding the impact of technology. Recent commentators purport that the aspiring lawyer must be a triple threat, possessing knowledge of the law, coding expertise, and in-depth knowledge of legal technology. Yet, focusing on legal technology risks overlooking the need for skills that transcend latest fads. Legal technology is a means by which to handle data: to organise it, record it, extract it, analyse it, predict from it and leverage it. Quantitative and statistical literacy – the ability to understand, apply, visualise and infer from data – underpins technological literacy and yet receives very little attention from those who encourage innovation in the legal curriculum.
