Lawyer Monthly December 2019 Edition
Edited by Jaya Harrar
From the Editor...
The year is drawing to a close as we present the final 2019 edition of Lawyer Monthly…how the year flew by!
A lot has happened: from the high street facing more pressure and shops such as Thomas Cook closing down, to British Airways being gifted a hefty GDPR fine, all the way to Trump’s impeachment trial and… Brexit.
It is tough to keep track of all that has hit our headlines this year, but if you turn to page 10 you can read about some of the top legal stories which hit 2019 and the lessons we have learnt.
A top story this month is our exclusive interview with Meyer Rosen – an experienced forensic expert witness – who provides insight into how to approach product liability in legal cases.
December also marks the centenary of the first female lawyer and a 100 years since the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act 1919 was given Royal Assent, removing all legal barriers to women working as lawyers. Turn to page 26 to read all about much the legal sector has progressed since and where things are yet to change.
I hope you enjoy this edition. Happy Holidays and a have lovely New Year!Jaya Harrar - Lawyer Monthly Editor
