Compass Chambers Glasgow Conference 2019

Compass Chambers is delighted to invite you to attend our annual Glasgow Conference which will take place on Friday 28 June at The Hilton, Glasgow, from 1pm until 5pm.

Under the Law Society of Scotland's Guidelines, delegates may claim 3 hours of CPD time.  The conference is open to all solicitors, in-house lawyers, trainees and paralegals.  

Compass prides itself on being innovative and, with this in mind, we will be using the CrowdCompass event app at the Conference this year.  The app aims to give delegates a more integrated and interactive experience.  On the app you will be able to view the Conference schedule and see details of all the speakers and sessions.  You will be able to access handouts from the talks, make notes, leave feedback, as well as interacting on social media. 

To ensure we can continue to improve the conference year on year we have decided to introduce an admission fee of £35 per delegate.  We believe this to be a reasonable charge that will not only help to continue the improvements to the Conference in the years ahead, but will also substantially raise the contribution to our annual charity, as £12 from each admission fee will be donated to charity.  Our nominated charity for this year is the Edinburgh Food Project.

We will be running a Civil and a Regulatory Conference side-by-side. The topics and speakers for each are as follows:


13:00   Combined Registration for both programmes
