President responds to comments about "Lefty lawyers"

The President of the Law Society of Northern Ireland, Rowan White, has issued the following response to the Prime Minister’s recent attack on lawyers.

“It is deeply troubling to hear the Prime Minister repeat the Home Secretary’s recent attack on so-called “lefty lawyers” for representing refugees and asylum seekers.

Politicians' ill-chosen words not only expose lawyers to the risk of harm but also serve to undermine respect for the Rule of Law in a sinister and insidious way. I think we are entitled to expect better of the Prime Minister.”
