Reaching out: LGFL in the media
At LGFL, one of our core activities is to reach out to new audiences by writing interesting and accessible articles about family law issues. Alongside this, we produce our own videos, feature in webinars, podcasts and radio shows.
When lockdown first happened back in March 2020, graphic designer Lindsey Legg realised that there was a real risk of communities and businesses becoming disconnected. So, she created Stay Connected Digital Magazine, an on-trend magazine packed with features from property to fashion, fitness to family. Being a digital magazine, Lindsey integrates live online elements such as music tracks and video to augment the written word, making it a really engaging read.
LGFL have been involved from the very start, with Director Rita Gupta contributing a double-page article on family-related issues. The latest edition, number 5 for February and March, has just been published, and you can read Rita’s article on “Separating responsibilities for separated parents” on pages 38-39.

The Law Society blog
The Law Society’s blog aims to showcase “work from around the organisation and views from across the legal sector”. Mixing news from Westminster and insights from legal professionals, it shines a light on issues affecting lawyers that the public may not often see. Director Rita Gupta is a regular contributor, and her latest article lifts the lid on how the pandemic has impacted on family lawyers and in particular, on the need to adapt rapidly to remote court hearings via video conferencing.

Interestingly, just a few days after this article went live, the story of the American lawyer who couldn’t turn off his ‘cat face’ filter in a virtual court hearing went viral.
“It is crucial to me that this not be couched as poking fun at or belittling the lawyer, but noting that it goes hand-in-hand with the legal community's effort to continue representing their clients in these challenging times, and at the incredible professionalism and dignity displayed by all involved…. It just exemplifies what we're all living with, you have to roll with the punches.”
This new digital radio station will be launching on 1 March 2021, but Rita has already recorded an edition of the Power Hour with Emma-Jane Taylor! Appearing as part of a panel, Rita’s episode is due for broadcast on Weds 3 March 2021, and there is a ‘listen again’ option on the River Radio website.
Rita very much enjoyed appearing on the show, building on her previous radio and webinar experiences as well as recording her own podcast, The Modern Family Lawyer.
