The case for popular legal education

“A British woman attempted to sue her former lawyers for professional negligence, claiming that, alongside a number of other allegations, they failed to advise that finalizing divorce proceedings would inevitably cause her marriage to end.” [Independent, U.K.]


  • I get a 404 message, so I can’t find out, but if anyone has a statement as to what she thought finalizing divorce procedures would do, enquiring minds want to know.


  • Sorry about broken link, should work now.

  • The article said she was Roman Catholic and argued that the lawyers should have taken that into account and advised her to seek a judicial separation instead of a full divorce.

    The courts have rejected her argument at least twice, including rejection by an Appeals Court.
