Murrays Legal Commentary – closing 31 Dec-1 Jan

Murrays Legal has, since June 2016, issued over 350 commentaries on the broad topic of insolvency, personal and corporate, from legal, economic, social and technology perspectives. International reports and views from the UK, Canada and the US, China and New Zealand have been included. Over 130 local and international cases have been reported, along with all proposed law reform and new laws in those areas.

Other fields covered have included criminal law, maritime, environmental, professional regulation, accounting, ethics, administrative law, human rights and legal history.

Its purposes, if it needs them explained, are to offer alternative views and knowledge, and prompt thinking and debate.

That is the extent of my overview, the search facility is there, and the inquiry tab.

Thank you for your readership, and to those who have commented, disagreed and otherwise been engaged.
