Please also note that this year all sessions will be filmed and made available to all attendees post-event. This will enable all attendees to revisit any sessions they attended, and to also watch retrospectively any sessions missed. Law Society of Scotland hope this will provide significant added value for those travelling to attend, and ensure that all participants can enjoy the event safe in the knowledge that you won’t have to rely solely on memories and note-taking to capture as much of the content as possible.

We look forward to seeing you in September and welcoming colleagues from across the globe to discuss the issues that matter to you.
