WHAT IS THE BEST COSTS ADVICE YOU CAN GIVE TO A YOUNG LAWYER? THE ENTRIES
What single piece of Advice on costs would you give to a young lawyer to stand them in good stead throughout their career? This was the question asked in the contest started last month. The contest has a prize generously donated by David Bentley at Wig and Pens.
NB the contest closes at 4.00 pm on the 1st February. There is still time to put in a last minute entry. (Doing things at the last minute is, after all, a large issue in many of the cases reported on this blog).
