Podcast of the Day

Eglantine Whitechapel: Supernatural Detective

The first podcast from acting troupe Kill The Beast spins off a character from their hit Fringe comedy He Had Hairy Hands. 1959: Newly-graduated secret agent Eglantine Whitechapel is valedictorian of her year. But when her beloved mentor mysteriously vanishes along with his cursed, occult book the Necronomicon, Whitechapel’s world is turned upside down.

Dog of the Day

Dangerously high pun content in this post from Hannah Foley of Kissoon Carr, but Teddy the dog is cute so she gets a pass.

Susan Pattie, senior debt manager at Womble Bond Dickinson, writes: “Moray wrestles with the thorny issues of overdue invoices vs 40 winks more… (the Sleep Aid tablets on the ring-binder folder being mine, not his!)”

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

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.


Show us life in isolation, either via email, or alternatively Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn posts can be tagged #lawagainstloneliness
