A MATTER OF DECORUM

Okay! Would somebody tell retired Court of Appeal judge Anthony Lucky that it just does not seem proper for his name, face and title to be plastered all over an advertisement for a private, family-run school teaching law.

LEARNING THE LESSONS OF LAW

Apart from the sensationalism, emotion and the general hue and cry generated by the unvarnished comments of the learned Justice of Appeal Stanley John Apart from the sensationalism, emotion and the general hue and cry generated by the unvarnished comments of the learned Justice of Appeal Stanley John , with regards to the performance and functioning of magistrates, there seems to be a larger issue at stake here on the question of continuing legal education for both members of the Bench and Bar, even from the magisterial level all the way up to the Court of Appeal.
