Video of the Day

Neil Mendoza of Selborne Chambers highlights this video, which legal professionals across the UK will no doubt identify with.

Recipe of the Day

During the pandemic Italian firm BonelliErede has put in place several measures to keep its 700 professionals spirits up. Among them, the Milan office’s chef Maurizio Bosotti has been sharing some dishes via the firm’s Instagram account, including this spaghetti cacio e pepe. 

Relaxed dogs of the Day

“This is my one-year old Chesapeake Bay retriever, Invincible, sleeping soundly through an arbitration hearing,” says 3VB barrister Jane Davies Evans.

And “here is Alice waiting for her locked-in dad to return from the office,” writes Paul Lucas of Paul Lucas Solicitors in Aylesbury

Get involved

Anyone in the legal sector is welcome to contribute to any of the sections of Law Against Loneliness.

Here is how to contribute to a few of the regular features we have run so far.  Everything can be sent to richard.simmons@thelawyer.com.

Video of the day

What we want are individual, personal contributions from lawyers and legal sector professionals working from home. You could be demonstrating a recipe, videoing your daily run, telling a joke, singing us a song, showing off a skill, or just telling us about your day and what you’ve been up to. We are very open to creativity – anything that uplifts or diverts.

What we don’t want is too many firm-branded videos talking about how seamlessly you have transitioned to a new way of working, please.

The Lawyer Listens

Contributors should send us a YouTube link and 100 words about the song in the style of previous entries.

Dog of the day

Self-explanatory. Send us dog pix. Or cats, ponies, rabbits, budgies etc. Don’t forget to let us know their name and give us a line of detail too if you’d like.
