J2J: Landlord & Tenant Mini Series 2015/16

Back by popular demand – the annual J2J property workshops!

  • Part One: Residential Possession Proceedings – The essentials and the Deregulation Act 2015
  • Part Two: Commercial Leases – The basics

As part of Hardwicke’s Junior to Junior (J2J) programme, our junior property barristers are offering two one-day workshops aimed at trainees and solicitors with 1-2 years’ PQE. The workshops are interactive sessions in small groups. Our aim is to address all of your niggling queries in relation to notices, service, which forms to use, costs etc, and, of course, anything else you wish to ask!
Part One of this seminar series will take place on 26 November 2015. Part Two will take place in early 2016, on a date to be confirmed.
