IS THE PEN MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD? WHAT IS THE BEST ADVICE ON COSTS YOU CAN GIVE TO A YOUNG LAWYER? WIN A PEN – WITH HISTORY BEHIND IT
What single piece of Advice on costs would you give to a young lawyer? What would help them throughout their career? I would be interested to know and, thanks to the generosity of David Bentley at Wig and Pens, I have set up a “contest”, with the best piece of Advice winning a remarkable prize. All you need to do is write 150 words on costs…
LETS START WITH THE PRIZE
The prize is the prestigious Tower of London Wood Pen. A handcrafted pen made from wood sourced from the renovation of the Tower of London.
Supplied as standard with a size 6 Beaufort Cyclone fountain pen nib or the Beaufort Cyclone roller ballpoint. Stunning premium metal hardware with screw action cap.
Details of the pen can be found here.
Wig and Pen’s website can be viewed here.
The Advice (no more than 150) words can be put as a comment at the foot of the post.
The closing date is 4.00 pm on the 1st February 2023.
All admissible entries will be printed on this blog.
THE JUDGING CRITERIA
That advice judged to be the most useful will be the winner. The judging team is anonymous (to avoid attempts of bribery…) but includes experienced costs lawyers and people who can write with a pen.
The judges’ decision will be final. No system of appeal exists. If you lose you can (and indeed must) complain on Twitter, in the social media of your choice, (or in the comments section below) that you were robbed. That will be your sole legal remedy. You will have to live with the fact that you are not the winner of a wonderful prize. (The consolation being that you could always buy one from Wig and Pens).
Anyone complaining too much will, of course, end up in the Tower…
