Leeds Law Society Legal Update Conference 2018

Thursday, 15 November 2018 at Irwin Mitchell LLP
The Leeds Law Society Legal Update Conference is designed to assist the Society's members with regards to their ongoing knowledge and information in key subject areas. CPD changes have impacted the need for regular training seminars, as well as larger firms offering these in-house. However the Society recognises that not all of our members have access to in-house or other external training.

In addition to being more cost effective than other external providers, the Legal Update Conference will showcase Leeds based professionals offering relevant training and insight on key topics across many sectors within which our members operate. This should be seen as complementary to the Leeds Conference.
