In Canada, this is the day barristers and solicitors (Queen's Counsel and commoner alike) and all loyal subjects celebrate the Sovereign's birthday. Not so in England, where the Queen's birthday is celebrated, not on Victoria Day (the last Monday before or on May 24 in honour of both Queen Victoria's birthday and the current reigning Canadian sovereign's birthday) but in June for the birthday of Her Royal Highness Elizabeth II. God save the Queen.
Today is, however, a very, very special day for law bloggers in the UK. Ruthie's Law hosts Blawg Review #160.
