Amid the corporate swirls and twee etchings at HowardKennedyFSi's offices, where the Legal Cheek team was lucky enough to spend yesterday evening gorging on fine wine and canapés at the firm's merger bash, one piece of artwork didn't quite fit...
After having the length of his brief limited to five pages by a judge, New York lawyer Bob Kohn decided to use a "graphic novelette" (a small part of which is pictured below) in order to convey his arguments in full.
Dear Auntie Em,
This post on The Student Room asking if legal CVs could be creative and artistic has got me thinking...
As an admirer of the artistic flair that you demonstrate for The Independent, but also of the hard-headed temperament that informs your Legal Cheek contributions, I feel you're well positioned to advise on this question.
I'd love to jazz up my CV a bit and I love art just as much as I love law. Plus, I think an artistic CV could help me stand out from the crowd in the hunt for a training contract. But some part of me feels that combining the two could be wrong. Help!
