Jonathan Lyness writes for Attitude and Qweerist on civil partnerships and the lack of rights for cohabitating couples in the context of the LGBT community

Soon-to-be-qualified lawyer in the Family team, Jonathan Lyness wrote alongside Gary Yan, a partner at Coote Family Law in Melbourne, on a number of family law issues relating to same-sex couples.

The Attitude article examined “Why the UK Supreme Court ruling on civil partnerships shouldn’t lead to their abolishment”, whilst the Qweerist piece covered “How same-sex couple are more exposed than their opposite-sex counterparts on relationship breakdown”.
