THE (NOT SO) LONELY LITIGATOR’S CLUB 9: SUE JAMES
I am taking advantage of this series to both make new friends and catch up with old ones*. I have known Sue James since we were at university together (a year or two ago now). We were both involved in the running of the student law centre and Sue has gone on to run law centres ever since. Sue is director and housing law solicitor at Hammersmith & Fulham Law Centre. She won the outstanding achievement award at the 2017 Legal Aid Lawyer awards. She writes a regular column for Legal Action & has written numerous telling articles for Legal Voice. I have been trying to persuade Sue to do appear on this blog for a long time, but been a bit wary of interviewing her because she is a real professional when it comes to writing about people, lawyers in particular. She has done some of the most prescient interviews of legal professionals I have seen. Sue is the only lawyer I know whose MP has held a reception at the House of Commons in her honour . Sue can also bake…
1 Where are you working from now?
I’m working from my bedroom in the attic. Fortunately there is a nice large desk in there, but it’s starting to feel a little hot with the warmer weather, so it may turn into an office/sauna.
2. What has been most difficult about working remotely.
Not being with the law centre team. I like being with people and I miss my colleagues (and the printer).
