Owning up to mistakes symposium - 6 November

’To err is human; to admit it, superhuman.’ Doug Larson.

  • How realistic or advisable is it for professionals to admit their own mistakes?
  • Is it sensible to do so, or career limiting?
  • What can lawyers learn from how other professions deal with their mistakes?
  • How will you be protected if you report another person’s mistakes?

You are warmly invited to attend this stimulating symposium in three parts being held at the Law Society in London: keynote speech, choice of workshop sessions, panel discussion.

Admitting a mistake to your client may be one thing, but what if you discover that a senior partner in the firm has been hiding a huge error? Be prepared to discard any preconceived notions you have about making mistakes. You may even come away thinking that mistakes are central to the learning process.

This evening event is free to attend.
