Public Sector Agility and the Proactive Lawyer

LLG are delighted to launch the programme for the Weekend School 2019 under the theme "public sector agility and the proactive lawyer". The conference has been designed to underpin the skills required to enable cross functional, collaborative lawyers and governance officers with intrinsic flexibility and dynamic focus.

The plenary sessions on the first day boast a range of high profile and topical speakers including Jane Ramsey from the Committee on Standards in Public Life and Robert Buckland QC MP, Solicitor General with the Attorney General's Office. It will also feature a senior civil servant from the Ministry, and an interactive Brexit Panel populated by our legal corporate partners. Tim Shields, the CEO of the London Borough of Hackney will present on the Golden Triangle which is highly topical for LLG, given our focused campaign to raise the profile of local authority lawyers.

The Saturday offers a full range of topical sessions for you to choose from. Black letter law, careers and development, technology for the legal professional to name just three. A full list of all the topics are in the programme. Overall, the conference provides plenty of scope for targeted examination of your work areas, together with networking and social opportunities,

The conference venue is the Courthouse Hotel, London; formerly the Great Marlborough Street Magistrate's Court on the 29th and 30th March with the opening taking place on the evening of Thursday 28th when you can meet and mingle with fellow delegates.

There are packages for attendance to suit your availability from conference and hotel provision through to day attendance or just an evening social event if you simply cannot leave the office and still want to join in the Weekend School and meet with colleagues.

View the programme and book your place online and when booking be sure to mention your LLG membership to take advantage of the discounted member attendance fee.

It is so important for us to come together, to share best practice and to demonstrate unity and strength in our professional cause.

Will you remember where you were on the 29th March 2019? Weekend School 2019!

I look forward to seeing you there.
