Published on 16/06/2013 By Brian Inkster

… I attended Reinvent Law in London on Friday.

Published on 16/04/2013 By Brian Inkster

… I was shocked and deeply saddened to hear yesterday morning that Elizabeth Miles had passed away over the weekend. Elizabeth was one of my very early connections on Twitter – way back in the pioneering days of 2009.

This article looks at “the current leading UK individual legal tweeters – the […]
