Like the rest of the Gazette team, Obiter has been working nomadically for the past five months. So we were intrigued during an essential visit to Chancery Lane last week to see what the old place looks like these days.

The short answer is: a bit of a construction site, as work continues on the February fire damage and transforming the Law Society offices to make more efficient use of space. As a result, the building is still closed. However the one-way system and social distancing indicators installed in communal areas give a possible hint of life after reopening.

Watch this space.
