If your hand is reward short, be thankful. EDITOR IN CHIEF . AREEJ HAMADAH

No matter what achievements we attain and open ways to succeed and reach what we dreamt of, we should not overlook who was the reason for our success; who supported us and held our hand to continue on our journey to success and progress. No matter how we express our gratitude to them, the words remain short. In fact, nothing is poorer than a person who isn’t thankful to others. My career life was not an easy journey, nor my path was filled with flowers. It was full of thorns, and I had faced many obstacles, difficulties and impediments. Many others fought against me without a mistake on my part. They closed all doors before my face without a convincing reason. Others claimed my efforts and initiatives for their own in a cheap attitude, while others sought to discredit me and backstab me falsely.

Kuwait Lawyers Society and Marketing Crime Lawyer . AREEJ HAMADAH

Kuwait Lawyers Society announced on social media that it has issued a decision to refer all lawyers who use social networking sites for marketing to themselves and their law firms to the disciplinary board. It further called to delete of their names from the legal profession, because that is contrary to the charter of honor and is rather degrading to the legal profession and ethical practice. This attitude remains controversial knowing that all present members of Kuwait Law Society Board continue to market themselves through social media! I find this behavior contradictory. Since when is marketing and seeking to attract new clients a crime, a degradation, and an attempt against manners?
