Diverse programme proves big draw for 21st Century Bar Conference
The 21st Century Bar Conference has proved as popular as ever, and only applications to join a waiting list are now being taken for next month’s event.
A customary diverse programme has been drawn up by the Faculty and the Law Society of Scotland’s In–House Lawyers’ Group (ILG) to mark the conference’s 15th year.
Lord Carloway, the Lord Justice Clerk, will give the keynote address while proceedings will be chaired in the morning by Laura Dunlop, QC, and co-chaired in the afternoon by Gordon Jackson, QC, Vice-Dean of Faculty, and Graeme McWilliams of the ILG.
The programme features contributions by senior and junior counsel on employment law (Graeme Dalgleish), intellectual property (Kathryn Pickard), public procurement (Ruth Crawford, QC), contract law (Ross Anderson), legal professional privilege (Alastair Duncan, QC), court reforms (Andrew Stewart, QC), data protection (Morag Ross) and company law (David Sellar, QC).
The conference is on Friday, 4 December, in the Mackenzie Building, and will be followed by a tour of Parliament House and a drinks reception.
