Generous

Just a quick post to highlight (literally, as above) something  I've not seen before in the heading of a reported judgment. In EDG v RR the heading mentioned not just that the father's counsel Deborah Bangay QC and Rebecca Bailey-Harris were acting for him pro bono, but added the adverb generously, no doubt at the suggestion of Mr Justice Holman, who used that word in his judgment. Deserved recognition for lawyers acting pro bono.

Of course, Ms Bangay and Mrs Bailey-Harris are far from the only family lawyers giving their time free of charge, particularly in these post-legal aid days. Hopefully, all the others will receive similar recognition.
