‘Rehoming’ for kids

‘Rehome’ your child. ‘Rehome’ your (young) son. That’s a new one on me! Like many, I guess, I always associated the term ‘rehoming’ with an animal. You know, you ‘rehome’ a dog or a cat, after they have been mended in a rescue facility or ‘rehome’ a formerly caged animal…

When spitting is not a crime…

Have I missed something here? The last time I heard – well, to be more precise, the last time I had contact with the criminal justice system and the law (in my professional capacity, you understand) – deliberately spitting at someone was a criminal offence, under the Criminal Justice Act…

Racism Goes Both Ways

When a Black Oxford University student bragged on Facebook that he had reduced a white waitress to tears when he and his friend refused to tip her after she served them, he thought he was being smart. But he was the one left looking like a dunderhead after sympathisers raised…

How I Was Scammed

Meet J. A. Lovelock

Hello and Welcome to my blog. What can I tell you about me? I am charming, witty, entertaining, spunky, sassy, beguiling (whatever that may mean), and great company (so I am told, lol!). Okay, in real life I am a lawyer and work in legal education. Contrary to popular belief, it’s really…
