Compass Chambers Glasgow Conference 2018

The Conference will take place on Friday 1 June 2018 at 200 SVS (200 St Vincent Street) from 1pm until 5pm and is open to all solicitors, in-house lawyers, trainees and paralegals.  Under the Law Society of Scotland's Guidelines, delegates may claim 3 hours of CPD time.

 

The conference is free to attend, but once again we are asking delegates for a minimum donation of £10 each to our nominated charity for 2018, Social Bite.  Donations can be paid on the day or by visiting our JustGiving page.

 

We will be running both a Civil and a Regulatory Crime programme side-by-side.  These are core areas of practice for Compass Chambers' and each programme aims to provide delegates with up-to-date information regarding the most important issues, along with the opportunity to discuss some of the most significant and current developments.  Members who specialise in these areas will lead the presentations.

 

The Conference will start with registration at 1pm and run through until 5pm.  A drinks reception and canapes will follow to which all attendees are invited.
