Happy International Women’s Day

To celebrate International Women’s Day, we asked some of our female barristers about their experiences and what they think of being a woman in the legal industry. Some people may still have the impression that law is a man’s game but this is not the case any more. The Bar is becoming more and more diverse and representative of the real world and women now make up over 38% of the industry according the the Bar Council. This figure has steadily increased over the last two decades but there is still a long way to go. So, to mark International Women’s Day, and in keeping with this year’s theme #BreakTheBias, we thought we would ask some of our female barristers…

Carin Hunt discusses the registration of cyclists with Lexis PSL

In a recent Lexis PSL News Analysis article, Carin Hunt considers how cycling and e-scooters may be regulated in the future and the potential impact for practitioners on personal injury law. Sabina Habib of Lexis Nexis interviewed Carin Hunt for a Personal Injury Analysis piece, published in July 2021. We summarise the their conversation below. Registration of cyclists The first idea considered by Carin in this interview was originally floated by motoring lawyer Nick Freeman. Freeman proposed the creation of a licensing system for cyclists and e-scooter riders. The suggestion is for cyclists to be compulsory registered, to wear numbered tabards, and be eligible for penalty points should they break the rules of the road. Carin cites expense, practical complexity, and the potential hidden…

Commission advises EU to say No to Lugano Accession

Yesterday, the European Commission published its assessment of the UK’s application to accede to the 2007 Lugano Convention. The Commission advises the EU to reject the UK’s application to join the Convention for two key reasons. First, the Commission notes that those non-EU countries which have acceded to the Lugano Convention “all participate, at least partly, in the EU’s internal market” – this being by way of the EEA agreement for Norway and Iceland, and a number of bilateral trade agreements for Switzerland. This economic link, or “high degree of economic interconnection”, between those third countries and the EU’s internal market, says the Commission, is a key basis for their accession to the Convention.  By contrast, the Commission says, the…

Recent developments in the law of unjust enrichment and their relevance to disagreements about funding of special educational provision

Following the case of Surrey CC v NHS Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (2020), Alexander Line and Carin Hunt consider how the claim in restitution is of importance to those advising and representing local authorities. Analysing Surrey CC v Lincolnshire CCG, Alexander and Carin consider the law on unjust enrichment and the four key elements to a claim for unjust enrichment in their most recent article. The authors also consider the Clinical Commissioning Group’s defence of invoking the exclusivity principle laid down in O’Reilly v Mackman [1983] 2 A.C. 237. Considering the decision of the High Court, Alex and Carin contemplate the potential consequences for education law, including the restitution for costs incurred by public bodies and restitution for costs incurred…
