Reply Link Anonymous 22 April 2009 at 08:12 Under the caption “On the Lawyer.com” on the first page of this website it says: “Exactly how difficult is it for LGBT people to forge a career in the law? It seems that no one knows for sure, which is why the Law Soc has teamed up with Stonewall and InterLaw to find out. And what would you do if you left the law? Make handbags perhaps?” I don’t appreciate the implication in that passage that if gay lawyers leave the law they should consider a career making handbags. That is a very biased and stereotypical view of the interests of lawyers who happen to be gay! We all do not have an interest in going into the fashion industry! Please remove that question. Thanks.
