As many of you will know, the team has been hosting a series of informal Zoom sessions in which members of the team discuss recent developments in the law or particular topics of interest. We have an exciting programme lined up for you over the next few months.
The sessions last no more than 45 minutes and you are welcome to ask any questions you might like on the discussion topics. The focus is practical tips and pitfalls to watch out for. Following each session attendees are provided with a Takeaway Cup handout, summarising the practical points, case law and/or procedural issues, so there is no need to take notes. Come along, relax, and learn about recent developments in law for half an hour or so.
You will be sent further details via email closer to each Brew.
