The Law Business: 16th to 22nd September

Welcome to the year's 37th edition of the weekly 'Law Business' column brought to you by the SundayLawReview team. 

This week, many column inches had been written about the face veil. While the actual number of Muslim women wearing the niqab or face veil working in the NHS may be rather low, ministers have asked the General Medical Council to ensure that there is appropriate face-to-face contact with patients. In the recent Crown Court case where a witness had originally refused to reveal her face, Judge Paul Murphy deliberated that the Muslim woman must remove her full-face veil when she gives evidence at her trial but may wear her niqab for the rest of the hearing.

With this and more, as ever, the purpose of this column is to take a serious look at what happened in the business of law within UK as reported by online legal publications throughout last week.
