Compass Chambers Edinburgh Conference 2016

Compass Chambers is delighted to invite you to attend our 9th Annual Conference.

The Conference will take place on Friday 18th November 2016 at The Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh from 1pm until 5.30pm. Under the Law Society of Scotland’s Guidelines, delegates may claim 3 hours of CPD time. The conference is open to all solicitors, in-house lawyers, trainees and paralegals.

Once again this year we are asking delegates for a minimum donation of £10 each to attend. These donations will be in aid of our nominated charity for 2016, The Child Brain Injury Trust. Donations can be paid on the day or by visiting our Virgin Money Giving Page

The conference programme will include a review of recent developments in the fields of reparation, regulatory prosecutions and professional negligence. A range of seminars will be led by Compass Chambers’ experts in each field.

As in previous years, delegates are given the opportunity to select 3 seminar topics from a choice of 6 and these will be heard in breakout sessions throughout the afternoon. The topics and speakers are as follows:

  • “Personal Injury Arbitration” – Angela Grahame QC and Jillian Martin-Brown
  • “The Dishonest Litigant” – Richard Pugh and Craig Murray
