Discount for LLG Members to attend the Legal Services Brexit Summit on 12th February 2019 in Central LondonPublish date: 06/12/2018
UK legal services, like many other parts of the economy, will be enormously affected by Brexit. The impact will be both direct and indirect – the former through any changes in market access and future cooperation between the UK and the EU in justice matters and the latter through the implications of Brexit for the users of legal services. It is therefore critically important that all stakeholders in UK legal services - law firms, in-house legal teams, central and local government solicitors, and barristers - keep themselves fully informed about current negotiations and what Brexit will mean under the various possible scenarios. The Legal Services Brexit Summit will be held on 12th February 2019 in London and it has been jointly organised by the Law Society of England and Wales and City & Financial Global. This highly topical event will examine the implications of Brexit for the provision of legal services in different practice areas, as well as its impact on clients and any potential opportunities that may arise.
LLG members are offered a 20% discount to attend this event and should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain their discount code required for booking. Alternatively, the code will be provided within the Bulletin on Friday 7th December 2018.
