NEW OFFER -
The Moët Award


A bottle of Moët & Chandon will from December 2012 be awarded for any contribution or suggestion by a member for the improvement of our service that we implement and judge to be worthy of an award. 

Entries should be sent to us via “contributions” at our members’ home page and judging will be at our sole discretion.

“This will be really good for teaching lawyers in general practice, junior lawyers and paralegals the role of the family lawyer. Being in one volume is brilliant – it will find itself in constant use, not left on the shelf as can happen with the multi-volumes.”
