I thought it was time for me to post info which may be useful to law students
From Legal Week: The College of Law’s Legal Practice Course (LPC) has been given the Law Society’s top grade in all five of its centres around the UK. The College’s centres in Birmingham, Chester, Guildford, London and York each received a ‘commendable’ practice grade for all six assessed areas of the LPC. The ranking follows a series of three-day visits by the Law Society, which have taken place over the last three months.
From The Bar Council: Warning on E-Mail scams: “It has come to our attention that barristers’ names are being used to front email scams and other scams. This is being done without the barristers’ consent or knowledge. If you receive an e-mail of this sort purporting to come in the name of a barrister with whom you have had no dealings, or with whom you are not expecting to have dealings, you are probably best advised to ignore it or to check directly with that barrister’s chambers. The Bar Council can take no responsibility for such matters. The fact that barristers’ names are being used in this way has been reported to the police.”
I’m afraid quite a few reputable organisations and individuals are being used in this way. I am tired of getting emails puporting to be me from spammers who use my email address as a front! Welcome to the net.
It might be a good idea to keep an eye out on Consilio for the next week. The Lobster is returning with prizes and I will shortly be announcing the wnner of the january caption Competition – and posting the February competition.
