The Second supplement to the Nineteenth edition brings the mainwork up-to-date by considering a number of important legal developments, including
  • the Government’s recent statement that, in light of Covid, legislation will be passed to legalise the witnessing of wills by remote means e.g. via platforms such as Zoom or FaceTime;
  • the Court of Appeal decision in Addlesee v Dentons Europe LLP [2019] EWCA Civ 1600 where the Court upheld the first instance decision that legal advice privilege attaching to communications between a company and its’ solicitors, subsisted despite the company's subsequent dissolution;
  • the appellate decision in Sports Direct International plc v Financial Reporting Council [2020] EWCA Civ 177 in which the Court of Appeal considered the circumstances in which LPP could be overridden by statute;
  • Shagang Shipping Company Ltd v HNA Group Company Ltd [2020] UKSC 34 where the Supreme Court provided guidance as to the approach to be adopted towards evidence allegedly obtained by torture; and
  • Yam v UK [2020] ECHR 41, where the European Court of Human Rights rejected the applicant’s submission that in holding part of a murder trial in camera, the UK had breached Article 6 of the Convention.
And many more...
