15 July 2014


In Mitchell v News Group Newspapers the Court of Appeal laid down their interpretation of the CPR in respect of relief from sanctions and stated that the idea was to eliminate satellite litigation. But these cases still came before the courts and the interpretations vary from circumstance to circumstance.

Now the Court of Appeal has given further guidance in three fresh cases.

MBL’s one hour webinar will review the approaches that the courts have taken this year together with the latest Court of Appeal decisions to consider what will happen in different circumstances.

Make your mark: Personal branding for barristers

stand out from the crowd

A recent Legal Futures article reported that the number complaints involving use of social media by barristers is increasing. The BSB have warned that “as social media and the internet become more prominent in our daily lives, there is an increasing need for barristers to be very careful about what they post whether in their professional or personal lives”. While inappropriate use of social media isn’t anything new, what struck me when reading that paragraph is that, for barristers, I would argue, there shouldn’t be a defining line between the personal and professional. As a barrister, you are your own USP, your personal brand is everything.
