We're a mouthy bunch here at LC.N, so we thought why not harness that verbosity for the power of good and put our words down on paper (well, screen). Our new blog spot will feature contributions from various members of the team, on topics that range from social networking to how to wow at interview to the implications of the Legal Services Act. We welcome comments, so if we've said something interesting or something you disagree with, let us know by logging in to MyLC.N and leaving a comment! It’s the 21st Century way you know.
