“This is Lola, a Hungarian Vizsla,” says Peter Titus of DCT Facilities Management. “While she gets her daily exercise I take a break from dealing with ever diverse and unique Covid-19 related Facilities issues for all our wonderful legal sector clients.”
“This is Loki, one of our three Maine Coons” writes private client solicitor Gail Willoughby. “Before you ask, no, he isn’t allowed in the microwave and no, he isn’t allowed on the bed either but have you ever tried training a cat?”

Booo! – Sticky ft Ms Dynamite
UK garage has mutated and synthesised into dubset and grime overtime, with grime leading to UK rap becoming a commercial force with the likes of Stormzy, Skepta, Dave and AJ Tracy. Booo!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
