Our annual autumn conference was originally scheduled to take place in London at the Law Society. However, due to the ongoing coronavirus situation, we’ve decided to move this event online.

As with face-to-face events, our expert speakers will provide you with practical information and technical know-how. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask your key questions.

Among other activities, our virtual autumn conference week comprises of a three-part webinar series covering:

  • an update on vicarious liability
  • soft skills for tangible success as a litigator, and
  • a panel session on insolvency proceedings.

The three webinars are inclusive for Civil Litigation Section members.

Booking closes 48 hours before each event.
