A note to end on

Philip Moser QC

The new editor of the Advocate has kindly asked me to contribute a short piece in the style of the ‘editor’s note’ that I wrote over almost twenty years as editor of this magazine. In the internal jargon I used with the publisher, I used to call this the ‘ednote’. Accordingly I think of this as the endnote.

Editor’s note

After a protracted and often acrimonious negotiation, the UK finally left the EU on 31 January 2020. This, then, is the first ‘post-Brexit’ edition of the European Advocate. It is also the first edition in some 20 years without Philip Moser QC at the helm as editor. I would like to thank him for the wonderful work he has done in bringing us this publication to fruition on its gentle seasonal cycle over the years.
