1] As citizens wait patiently for the #HighCourt ruling on the matter regarding #MDC_T's parenthood of the #MDC_A, i fail to see how the judgement changes anything really.

This is because the #MDC_A is now a political party.
Something which a court can neither confirm nor deny.
2] The crux of this matter is more #political than it is #legal.

Though #Mwonzora & team were arguing today that the #MDC_A was an #electoral pact which merely now exists as some faction of the #MDC, only a week ago, he had people recalled for joining a party called "#MDC_A".
3] Although #Mwonzora was argues the MDC-A is a 2018 coalition, which ceased to exist post elections, nothing suggest the "individual parties" continued existing as such.

For post 2018 bi-elections,what strategy was used to choose candidates if the parties remained autonomous?

I'm exhausted, but then the study must go on. Here's month four of the state of #OpEds in @IndianExpress @htTweets & @the_hindu.

April has been rougher than March.

It's actually been really really awful. In general, and for #OpEds too.

Again, excluded Sundays since they're reserved for the usual columnists.

The quality of #writing has remained the same as the same writers have been writing here since time immemorial.

@IndianExpress had 130 #OpEds, @htTweets 78 & @the_hindu 122. #BringInMoreWomen
Of the 130 in @IndianExpress, women got only 18 bylines. This includes four joint bylines.

Their 'The Editorial Page', gave top billing to women ONLY ONCE. Wow. Aruna Sundararajan wrote on the lockdown dilemma.

This time last week, I was in the middle of a 3-day High Court Trial that was being conducted on Skype for Business.

Having experienced one of the first fully virtual Trials, I thought I would share some tips for those who are yet to hold one.

Here are my 30 tips...

Tip 1

Test your set up prior to the Hearing by holding conferences using the same software that will be used during the Hearing – Skype for Business may be used for the Hearing.
Tip 2

Schedule team/client conferences that will happen before, during and after the Hearing ahead of time. Agree on who will be responsible for setting up the calls, on what platform and during which times.

Why do some people die from #coronavirus/#COVID19, while others show no symptoms? Why did I end up critical in the ICU, while my husband had medium-level flu symptoms for a week?

#COVID19Pandemic #CoronavirusPandemic #CoronavirusUSA
It might not be just about age and health conditions; there could be a genetic influence as well. (Thanks to @larry_falbe for the interesting article.)

Suddenly getting lots of queries about my health (from folks not familiar with my story). I’m 44, not overweight, no smoking, no drugs, hardly any drinking. No health conditions except exercise-induced asthma, which I manage with an inhaler.

(1/n) A list of about 150 residents of Nagpur city was openly shared on several WhatsApp groups last night. It contained tabular data that consisted of names, addresses, phone numbers of home quarantined individuals, organized by zones and police station. #covid19india
(2/n)This list did not mention a header or footer or any source or owner responsible for this sensitive data. It did not mention whether consent was sought from home quarantined individuals for sharing their private information openly over digital or offline media. #covid19india
(3/n) This immediately triggered vigilantism on groups where the list was shared. A lot of those listed on the set of home quarantined individuals started receiving calls. #covid19india

#PrimasUC.Una pausa en #Covid_19 .Resulta sorprendente el secreto en que llevan sesiones de los #CU de la @UCarabobo. En la última sesión del domingo 15 “para tomar medidas URGENTES por el virus 🦠 “aprobaron por mayoría otorgar #primas a ex autoridades: rectores, vicerrectores,
secretarios y decanos. Para tal desatino se basaron en una sentencia del @TSJ_Venezuela a propósito de los ex rectores del #CNE. Tal sentencia no estaba en manos de los consejeros y por lo tanto el representante profesoral @GustavoAGuevar3 salvó su voto. Se habrán de beneficiar..
alrededor de 42 ex autoridades. En su momento mostraremos la sentencia a la cual se hace referencia. Afortunadamente todavía tenemos gran capacidad de asombro más aún cuando se realizó,previo a la decisión,una consulta selectiva a ex autoridades. #Vergüenza...

While the profile and attraction of in-house legal roles have drastically increased, understanding of what it takes to be a successful in-house counsel......

#successful #Legal #Counsel #lawyers #lawsikho
And how it is different from a role in a law firm or litigator is not very well understood by a vast majority of lawyers who want in-house jobs.

I spoke to 5 CEOs who have hired General Counsels or set up a legal team to learn about their experiences.
What they said was markedly different than usually what the in-house counsels have to say.

Since it is often a CEO or CFO who decides who to hire as a General Counsel or Legal Head, I think this advice would be pretty important!

1. As WH Counsel stonewalls the impeachment inquiry, keep in mind they may be involved in the actions under investigation.
2. NSC lawyers ( #Legal in @WHNSC speak) report to WH Counsel — one of those lawyers, Eisenberg, reportedly directed the use of a codeword server to hide call readouts
3. And NSC lawyers were told about concerns regarding Sondland’s words w the Ukrainians

1. I imagine the National Security Council (NSC) structure and purpose is not well known to many, nor is the role of a "Director for Ukraine"
2. I was a Director at the NSC for 2 years before moving on to advise the National Security Advisor.
2. Ltc. Vindman is testifying tomorrow. He is the NSC Director for Ukraine. That means he was picked to do a lot of things including serving as POTUS's primary in house expert on Ukraine

It often involves first hand engagement with POTUS and VPOTUS and other senior WH officials

1. NSC lawyers were aware of concerns before the call took place - based on how the WH is set up NSA Bolton was too.
2. Whomever signed off on scheduling the call officially ( Mulvaney) likely aware too - but it went forward
3. Normally ( nothing about how this WH operates is normal) - TPs are given to @POTUS and the NSA, policy leads, and often an NSC lawyer prep POtUS - including on what not to say or what to watch out for.

Paying For Law Firm SEO & Not Seeing Results? - *THREAD* - There are a million shades of SEO techniques, ranging from standard to spammy. Algorithm updates hold us captive, success is for sale, and the page rank is the status symbol dujour for lawyers online. (1) #SEO #legal
We think the true benefit of SEO is typically enjoyed by law firm marketers with a balanced understanding of time, long-term & short-term strategy, and the strongest command of their brand. What do we mean by that? Take a look at an 18 mo. snapshot for an SEO client; (2)

Forgive the type-o's but as livid and upset as I am, I didn't bother to proofread the DM! I had every reason in the world to believe this nightmare was on the cusp of ending 2 years ago and a lot of prominent people helped me come to that conclusions!

A #data informed look at how the #human experience of #lawyering has changed over time.

Just as #clients need better #value propositions, #law firms need better business models. Meaningful #legal #transformation will occur where the two intersect.…
H/T to @augierakow @robsaccone for the post #inspirelegal 🤓 email chain that #inspired this tweetable.

(Bc I’m a tweetable factory. 🤷🏻‍♀️)
Another reaction to this @wihender post: we NEED to deal with #automation anxiety in #legal.

Legacy models of law practice aren’t built for the pace of #business and volume of #information of the #digital age.

More #hours from more #lawyers can’t be the default answer.
