So many remarkable stories of remarkable people doing remarkable work. That aspect of the LALYs is always so moving every year. 2/12
But as my new friend @SpikeNorman said later, this year many friends and family will have got to know why their mate or family member with the weird job - 'what is it they do again? Like a lawyer but no money, is that it?' - do what they do. 3/12

Usually, I tweet my Law in Rural America course @UMichLaw on Weds, but this week 2 students created FANTASTIC threads outlining what we're working on 👉🏻 Rural #LegalAid + #AccessToJustice. Read the threads, then ask @mvrleegoskv + @HannahPaton12 any Qs you may have! 💯 1/

So for the last few months I have been exploring setting up a dedicated #Housing advice centre for #Suffolk. It is undeniable that due to the lack of #LegalAid provision in the county and the increase in people seeking specialist advice that a housing advice centre is desirable.
Whilst speaking to people about this a question that has been raised a number of times is “why are you not still providing specialist housing advice at @midsuffolkcab?” A good question that really does need answering so here goes.
This was me just over 7 months ago, happy #volunteering for @midsuffolkcab as a housing adviser and running a general advice outreach service at Wattisham. I was busy, the role stressful but for the most part I was throughly enjoying being part of something that I believed in.

The reaction to this offer has not been uniformly positive. Some feel strongly about the tradition and the majesty that accompanies the in-court oath. Let me say a bit more about why, while I agree, I still think we should be expanding our options. A thread. 1/
First: I love an in-courtroom swearing in of a new member of the bar. It moves me every time. Michigan’s oath, in particular, is demanding and specific and reminds us of the very best of our profession. I took my first oath in an appellate courtroom. I still remember it. 2/
Brief detour: @MIStateBar let’s look at a group swearing in a couple of times a year at the @MISupremeCourt. A time when anyone who wants to can come and be sworn in together in our courtroom, taking the oath together. Other states do this. It’s powerful. And open to all. 3/

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it -

Welcome to the #Metpolice who also changed & falsified my arrest details. Have a look at the evidence here as it's all easy to prove & that's why it's never addressed

Today in the county court I represented a real-life #DanielBlake. He is 51 and has depression and PTSD. He cannot use a computer. 1/13
According to his doctor he is not fit for work. The DWP thinks otherwise though, and since moving him from ESA to #universalcredit 2/13
He has been repeatedly sanctioned for failing his ‘Claimant commitment’ of job-searching for 35 hours per week. 3/13
