Someone I know from school, so not a “friend” is a solicitor involved in very high profile historic criminal cases. They regularly comment about them on Facebook, sharing elements from the trials. Now I know a lot of the information is potentially public but I think they are professionally out of line because a) they should not be commenting on social media and b) this behaviour strikes me as rather “glory hunting”
That’s what I thought. I get that if it’s in the public domain it’s fine (I’m a lawyer myself), but it’s the stealth bragging and do they have the client’s consent to be making the comments they’re making?
