Lawyer Monthly - January 2021 Edition

From the Editor...

Happy New Year!

Many of us happily waved off the tumultuous 2020 and welcomed in 2021, sticking to the tradition of associating a new year with a new beginning. Even though COVID-19 is still very much around, the news of effective vaccines has us all hoping for a more positive year, which has thus shaped our first 2021 edition of Lawyer Monthly.

We have a collection of articles this month that highlight what the year ahead may bring; from changes in family law to new potential legislations, our January edition rounds up what 2021 may look like for the business world and lawyers alike. A particularly noteworthy article comes from Humberto Guizar, who reflects on what 2020 has taught us about civil rights and how this may shape the United States' future.

Focusing on the importance of mental health during lockdowns and restrictions, we also feature an insightful section on what makes lawyers happy. A must-read for those in the industry who want to ensure legal professionals are looking after their mental well-being. Another interesting article comes from Dr Volker Römermann, who addresses the issues companies have been facing during the pandemic.

We also hear from our trusted advisers from Phillips & Associates who discuss pregnancy rights in the workplace and the considerations that need to be made during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We hope you enjoy our first 2021 edition and I look forward to providing you with updates and insights throughout the year!
