THE LAW Society's journal The Gazette appears in grave danger of being drawn into the political battle currently raging within the Law Society.
Martin Mears is understood to be fuming over a scathing attack by Paisner & Co partner Stephen Levinson against his views on discrimination in last week's editorial/comment page of The Gazette.
The president is understood to have found Levinson's remark that discrimination lawyers were entitled at the next election "to reflect on the way in which their area of practice has been held up to ridicule and contempt" particularly galling.
He told The Lawyer that readers of The Gazette should "draw their own conclusions" from the printed text about his reactions.
He also warned he was always quick to defend himself.
