John Dilworth is one of our new members. He is willing to start a new group which we are calling Law for Fun. This is what John has to say about the new Group
“I am a recently retired Barrister. In the first session of “Law for Fun” I will share with you details of my unconventional journey into the law. I will also tell you about different roles I have had during 40 years within our Criminal Justice System. “Law for Fun” is probably something of a misnomer because law is a serious business. During my career I have dealt cases that have impacted tragically on those involved. Law also involves conflict which is rarely a good thing. Law can often be complex and at times mystifying. My aim will be to unravel some of the complexity by talking to you about some legal topics that may be of interest to you. I hope that the talks will be inter active and that you ask lots of questions. By adopting this approach we can enjoy “Law for Fun”! Continue reading
One of our new members is a qualified Barrister and has recently retired from a “life of crime” that spanned over 40 years and in his words is now living on the proceeds.
He is willing to talk about a number of legal topics in a relaxed and entertaining way.
He will not talk about whether you should pay your parking tickets from Maghull Square but will provide a light hearted look at some legal topics (and perhaps to bust some urban myths!
Some of the topics that could be covered:
- Human Rights, what is all the fuss about?
- How does the European Convention on Human Rights impact on the Criminal Justice System?
He will also try to cover any other topic that people may be interested in for example :-
- How did a humble snail have such a huge impact on English Law?
- What did we learn from two sailors and a cabin boy that is still being talked about today?
- Why do I have a car that is impossible to rob?
We need to know how many people would be interested in attending this group before we book a suitable venue. We hope to start the group in March on the afternoon of the 3rd Thursday (21st March). If you are interested please add your name to the list on the Group Support Desk or text Brenda on 07900525222
