The Administrative Law Section had objected to some of the proposed rules at the Bar’s General Meeting in September.“They [the two sections] worked together and came up with the standards,” said PEC Chair Frank Walker. “They came up with an agreement. The Board of Legal Specialization and Education voted unanimously in favor of this and it was also approved by the PEC.”Board member Larry Sellers noted the name of the new certification area is long to avoid confusion with the existing City, County, and Local Government Law certification.

Comment Gabriel is expected to complete his move to Arsenal after undergoing a medical (Picture: Getty)A lack of Champions League and matchday revenue, however, has forced Arsenal to consider ways of balancing the books. The club has already confirmed its intention to make 55 redundancies, while Raul Sanllehi vacated his position as head of football last week and technical director Edu continues to oversee a major overhaul of the scouting department. Sanllehi’s departure has resulted in Arteta assuming greater control over Arsenal’s transfer dealings and the former club captain is striving to create a more balanced squad. According to The Times, the 38-year old is willing to sanction the departures of four central defenders, four midfielders and two fowards. English duo Rob Holding and Calum Chambers are likely to be deemed surplus to requirements, with the latter attracting attention from Fulham.
