Lawyer Monthly - Latest Edition

June has been a whirlwind of a month: Donald Trump withdrew the US from The Paris Agreement; the UK formed a new government to initiate Brexit; and, global ransomware attacks caused huge turmoil. A small handful of events has posed questions and debates, which all in all has evidently effected the legal sphere on a huge scale.

Therefore, this month we address many of issues and events that June has welcomed. With World Environment Day taking place on 5 June, we speak with a specialist in International Marine Environmental Law, who discusses Trump’s controversial decision and the impact it will have on our precious planet.

In light of London Tech Week, our main focus this month is around how technology is impacting the legal sector. From revising regulations, preventing further cyber-attacks and embracing developments into the legal profession itself, we reach out to experts from all areas, to enlighten us on the future of law. On the topic of reshaping the legal sector, we also hear from Valerie Kenyon, who is a senior products lawyer in Hogan Lovells’ Global Products Law team.
