Compass Chambers Glasgow Conference 2017

Compass Chambers Annual Glasgow Conference
Friday 26 May 2017

Compass Chambers is delighted to invite you to attend our annual Glasgow Conference.

The Conference will take place on Friday 26th May 2017 at 200 SVS (200 St Vincent Street), from 1pm until 5pm.  Under the Law Society of Scotland's Guidelines, delegates may claim 3 hours of CPD time.  The conference is FREE to attend, however this year we are asking delegates for a minimum donation of £10 each to our nominated charity for 2017, British Red Cross – Syria Crisis Appeal.  Donations can be made on the day or by visiting our Virgin Money Giving page.

This year we are delighted to be providing an even more specialised event for delegates. You will have the option to attend either our Reparation programme or our Regulatory programme which will be running side by side. The two programmes will provide a comprehensive review of the latest procedural and policy developments in Compass Chambers' core areas of Reparation and Regulatory Crime.  Delegates will get up-to-date information regarding the important issues concerning these core areas along with the opportunity to discuss some of the most significant and current developments.  Members of Compass Chambers who specialise in these areas will lead the presentations.

The Conference will commence at 1:00pm with registration and run through until 5:00pm.  A drinks reception and canapés will follow to which all conference attendees are invited.
