Women on Boards – As they progress, businesses thrive

By Susana Almeida Lopes Women represent 50% of the working population and are as much or more educated and qualified as men are.

ABA urged to close law school doors

US LAWYERS are pressing the American Bar Association to shut the doors on law schools after recent figures showed the country’s attorney population had grown to almost 900,000. ABA president-elect Lee Cooper said it was “staggering” that the number of lawyers in the US had reached almost one million, compared with 400,000 in 1975. Cooper […]

Winning the public trust

In The Lawyer 5 September Gary Hickinbottom re-stated his view that it was unacceptable for experts to have an interest in the outcome of a case.
