Law Practitioner William Hogg is celebrating success after gaining a Master’s
Degree in Law (LL.M.), which will help in his application to one of the most
specialist family law panels in the country.
who has been with Broadway based Hegarty & Co for 13 years already handles a
wide variety of family law work and hopes to further specialise as a result of
his success. In studying for his LLM, he wrote an in depth report on
International Child Abduction. This
report will now form part of his application to be on the Lord Chancellor’s
recommended list of those with enough knowledge to handle this complex area of
on his success, William said:
very satisfying not only to achieve a Master’s degree, but also to put it to
some practical use. I have already
handled a number of International Child Abduction cases, but being accepted onto
the Lord Chancellor’s list would be official recognition of my skills in this
area. To be accepted onto the panel
you need a thorough understanding of foreign legal procedures, which are often
very different from those in the UK.”
Gurney, Head of Hegarty’s large Family Law Department said:
extremely pleased with William’s result.
Even within one area of law such as Family work, we need to have
particular specialisms, and his success will enable us to help and even greater
number of people in this complex area of law.”
& Co’s web site contains a comprehensive guide to Family Law.
