Lawyer Monthly - July 2022

Welcome to the June 2022 Edition of Lawyer Monthly! This month’s issue tackles a range of emerging concerns in the legal sector. With the UK government set to override the Northern Ireland Protocol, a key portion of the Brexit deal, our cover story focuses on the new bill and its implications for the UK, EU and Ireland. What does the bill change? What are the concerns of its critics, who have slammed it as illegal under international law? You can find our analysis on page 12. In an exclusive interview on page 66, we hear from Tracy Liberatore and Michael Jonathan Clark of Med Legal Pro, a growing Pennsylvania firm connecting legal counsel with expert witnesses. Both share their career stories and offer a unique perspective on the world of medical expertise. Our other cover story for this month comes from Nuno Cardoso-Ribeiro on page 44, exploring the unique aspects of Portuguese family law and their implications for international parental child abduction in the country. Further insights on international child abduction are shared by Richard Min on page 50, delving more deeply into the crime and how its victims are recovered. In addition, other featured contributors have offered exclusive deep dives into a range of subjects including mediation training, Brazilian white-collar crime and special education litigation for you to browse. The July edition also includes a round-up of several of the explosive legal news stories to emerge this month, such as the US Supreme Court’s shocking reversal of Roe v Wade, as well as a report of lawyer moves and a breakdown of high-profile mergers and acquisitions. We hope you enjoy this edition. Approx. 302,000 net digital distribution.
