The changing face of the legal profession

12 Nov 2015

Sony stopped making Betamax video tapes this week. Until I heard the news, I hadn't realised that Sony still made them, some three decades after VHS won the video wars of the 1980s. But it turns out that some people continued to use Betamax up until 13 years ago when Sony stopped making the recorders and then this week when they stopped making the cassettes.

He spent the following nine weeks at the Court instructing two barristers. The experience was at once daunting and exhilarating. It was also one of the experiences that inspired Joseph’s passionate advocacy for the benefits of suburban legal practice.
