In brief: Chancery judge available for hire in North

Mr Justice Jonathan Parker, the vice-chancellor of the County Palatine, is calling on lawyers to contact his clerk for matters needing a Chancery Judge in northern England. He says if a matter “can be identified as justifying a hearing by a Chancery High Court judge, arrangements can be made for the attendance of a Chancery judge in the North”. His programme until the end of the year covers Liverpool (3-13 Oct); Manchester (6-17 Nov); Leeds (20-24 Nov); and Newcastle (27 Nov-1 Dec). Contact 0171 936 7087.
