About The Author

Bláthnaid Breslin (Joint Editor-in-Chief)

After more than two years with Keep Calm Talk Law and a year as Joint Editor in Chief, Connor Griffith has stepped down in order to focus on his training contract at a large national firm. His contribution to the website has been invaluable, and he will be missed.

We are pleased to announce that Peter Lennon will be taking his place as Joint Editor-in-Chief. Peter has contributed pieces such as Grenfell Tower Fire: a Turning Point for Corporate Manslaughter? and Commissioner v DSD: Sending Police Liability into Uncharted Waters in the past, and will now be turning his attention to the editorial side. Bláthnaid Breslin will be continuing in her role as Joint Editor-in-Chief. 

Moving forward, we are committed to continuing the success KCTL has enjoyed under Connor and Bláthnaid’s leadership. KCTL will continue to provide up-to-date coverage of current affairs, for example: The British Bill of Rights series (Part I and Part II) which considered the potential impact of Brexit on human rights law; Fundamental No More? Dual Nationality and the Loss of EU Citizenship; and The Shamima Begum Case: A Just Decision? We will also continue to bring you in-depth legal analysis on topics such as vicarious liability, defamation law, non-disclosure agreements and much more in our efforts to make the law accessible to all.

We are also excited to grow the site in a number of new areas. In April 2018 we began branching out into book reviews beginning with The Secret Barrister (reviewed by Connor here). Since then we have also reviewed Helena Kennedy QC’s Eve Was Shamed (reviewed by Malvika here), William Clegg QC’s Under the Wig (reviewed by Bláthnaid here) and Doing Justice by Preet Bharara (reviewed by Connor here). We are excited to have been contacted directly by publishers to review a number of legal books and hope to bring you more of these reviews in the future. 

Over the course of the year, we will also be releasing useful articles for students and would-be lawyers, from surviving the LPC to applications, interviews, and what “commercial awareness” actually means. For previous advice see: Keep Calm Talk Law’s Guide to Mooting, The Biggest Challenges Facing the Legal Profession in 2019 and Common Application Mistakes and How to Avoid Them. Keep an eye out for more in the near future.

After a summer break, we are excited to get things moving again! We look forward to working with our amazing team once again and hope next year can be as successful as those that have come before it.
