  • Considering the negative image that lawyers have in our modern age, I'd just like to say how impressed I am with all that has been done so far on this case.

    The fact is that without the assistance everyone has provided, working either for free or on substantially reduced fees, Paul Chambers would have been denied access to justice. Furthermore, the rest of us would be subject to the application of a law in a manner far from that which parliament intended.

    So, from just one Joe Public with a strong interest in the case, thanks! I know this is not your motivation, but I really hope you all get the recognition and plaudits you deserve from this case.

    Lawyers done good!

    Martin.

  • I completely agree, plus I can't believe how many people have offered money on Twitter to cover costs, even Stephen Fry pledged to pay whatever fine is given! Also, what amazing experience for a trainee! I hope I can be involved in cases this high profile as a trainee.

  • Indeed fantastic job, congratulations to ALL those who got mobilised to help: lawyers, celebrities and laymen. But I think the title is less than sincere. Is it genuinely newsworthy that some trainee is going to work on the case? Is this a first? Don't trainees routinely work on cases, as part of large team, during their contentious seats? So how is this particular article newsworthy? L2B could have done a better job with the title.By the way, was this a press release sent in by a law firm? Would anyone from L2B comment?
