Lockdown hasn't been a smooth experience for everyone in the legal profession. One lawyer has been framed for hosting an illegal lockdown party, another has had to fake a work schedule to his wife, while others have struggled to pick suitable attire for Zoom calls (or get changed at all).

RollOnFriday would like to capture a snapshot of the legal community in lockdown. Please send in your photos or videos - whether its a comedy haircut, a novel design for a WFH office or if you've discovered your artistic side by creating a mosaic floor entirely out of smarties.
A winner for the best picture or video will be sent a RollOnFriday survival pack - probably consisting of gin, a pointy sticky and a Steven Seagal DVD, all of which may arrive well after the lockdown ends. The worst picture or video will also be awarded a prize of equally limited value.
If you’d prefer, you can keep your entry anonymous.
