The Leeds Conference

Leeds will once again host a major business event to highlight the city’s growing stature as the UK centre of excellence for legal services outside the City of London.  The Leeds Law Society and Leeds City Council have joined forces to help promote the strength of the Leeds legal community to business leaders and politicians around the world. Last year saw over 200 legal professionals gather for this event.

Confirmed speakers to date include the head of the Government Legal Department, senior figures from magic circle law firm Linklaters and FTSE 100 giant Aviva, the enterprise editor of the Financial Times, the first female president of the Leeds Chamber of Commerce, government representatives from Hungary, Luxembourg and Flanders and a prominent New York-based international entrepreneur who grew up in Leeds.
Other speakers include new overseas investors in Leeds from China and Australia, directors from the Legal 500 and the business editor of the Yorkshire Post.  More high-profile business and civic speakers will be added in the coming weeks.

This will be a full date event on the 13th June. The morning sessions will focus on Leeds and the UK, with break-out sessions on wellbeing and living wage. The afternoon will be looking at the international issues facing Leeds and the sustained growth of the legal sector in Leeds.
