Real divorce lawyers are calm and meticulous despite an outdated legal landscape

Katharine Landells, a partner in Withers’ Family team, writes in the Independent on Sunday that the BBC legal drama, The Split, portrays divorce proceedings as inevitably antagonistic and risks negatively impacting on people’s perception of the process. Ms Landells says it would be more productive if the programme highlighted how divorce lawyers are “accomplished strategists” and illustrated how they are working within a “broken system that is strewn with obstacles imposed by outdated legislation.”
