Professional awareness about the impact of internet pornography is not just for teachers or healthcare professionals; lawyers need to be aware of it too. A very good free, daily e-newsletter for the legal profession in Scotland is the Scottish Legal News. It covers all the latest developments in the profession from court decisions, to news from law firms, legal institutions such as The Law Society of Scotland, the Faculty of Advocates and academia. It also highlights events and includes big stories from the UK and Scottish Parliaments, and from the English and Irish courts too.
Every year they publish an annual review with stories from a wide variety of legal personalities. This year Mary Sharpe was invited to submit an article to explain her transition from practicing law as an Advocate to founding The Reward Foundation. Mary focused on what lawyers need to know about internet pornography as the basis for her story. You can read it here. We suggest you start at the end and work forward.
