Starting Point Employment Law Guide – Jersey Update – September 2018

By Siobhan Riley, Huw Thomas, Tarina Le Boutillier Whilst in the UK changes to employment legislation generally happen in April, major changes to Jersey employment law have in recent years occurred in September. September 2018 is no exception and will arguably be the busiest September for Jersey HR professionals for some years. There is a raft of changes […]

Updates on proportionality of costs in court proceedings

By Gwendoline Davies, Claire Acklam Anyone involved in the conduct of litigation will be aware that the ‘overriding objective’, at rule 1.1 (1) of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR), requires cases to be dealt with “justly and at proportionate cost”.

The alteration to paragraph 212 of the Bar’s code of conduct came into effect on 1 June and removes rights of audience from any barrister not in independent practice or working in-house. The […]

Chancery lane's dream team?

As ballot papers go out for another Law Society election, the Lawyer begins its election coverage by looking at the current state of the Law Society and asking whether Michael Mathews, Robert Sayer and Kamlesh Bahl can turn the society around. They make an odd alliance and appear the most unlikely of reformers. But Michael […]

Bar pressed to take action against age discrimination

Barristers are pushing for a clause in the Bar’s code of conduct outlawing age discrimination. The move comes after statistics compiled by students at Middle and Inner Temple showed that applications from candidates over 30 were nearly twice as likely to fail compared to ones made by those under 30. The Bar’s recently established equal […]

Meddling with the nation's retirement

New Labour has endangered occupational pension schemes, warns Jane Marshall. Jane Marshall is a partner and head of pensions at Hammond Suddards. The importance of retirement provision has never been more recognised – but are traditional occupational schemes suitable with today’s labour market and work patterns? Pension provision is particularly tax efficient. Contributions paid by […]

Playing the devil's advocate on CPE

Mr Justice Lightman’s speech to the Chancery Bar Association earlier this month has certainly stirred up something of a hornet’s nest. His comments on the education of young barristers in particular have provoked fury among those many lawyers who have trained via the Common Professional Examination route. Judge Lightman asks how such an education could […]
