LSBU Student Law Society magazine ‘The Devil’s Advocate’
13 December 2013
Our cover stories this issue include an interview with Maura McGowan QC, Chairman of the Bar Council, who discusses changes to the legal profession and the impact of cuts to the legal aid budget, and what aspiring barristers can expect. We also have an exclusive interview with Supreme Court Justice,
The Rt. Honourable Lord Reed, who gives an account of his work as a judge of the Supreme Court. Lord Reed will also be delivering a key note lecture at London South Bank University on the 4 April 2014.
This edition kicks off a new sports law section, where students will examine developments in this fast changing arena. Triumph over adversity is given the spotlight in a student profile of a second year student Fereshta Ahmadzi, who grew up under the restrictive Taliban regime in Afghanistan, but is
now thriving on the LLB. Visiting Professor Max Weaver also provides an insightful commentary on a lifetime's thinking on the law of torts.
This issue also launches the street law project from the LSBU Student Law Society together with the Law Department. The project is designed to engage schools and colleges in a critical examination of their legal responsibilities and rights. The magazine also features updates on Student Law Society programmes
such as the return of the innovative mentoring scheme, mooting competitions, weekly indoor football and a series of guest lectures planned for next semester.
Editor Beverly Sowah would like to thank all students and staff who continue to help produce the magazine adding "working on the publication is an excellent opportunity for students to keep up to date with current issues in Law".
