Annual Conference 2017

Leading Legal Excellence: For the greater good

Tuesday 19 September 2017, 9:15am - 5:30pm, Edinburgh International Conference Centre

Our 2017 annual conference will focus on the power of the law to work ‘for the greater good’ and how, used properly, it can change the lives of individuals or groups in society. Join us as we consider the ramifications of constitutional upheaval; the redrawing of established social norms and the operational implications of innovations in technology.

Delegates will be able to hear from a wide range of thought-provoking experts and choose from a number of streamed sessions across three broad themes:

  • For the greater good

Explore the role of the law in changing lives and opening up opportunities for individuals and communities. We turn the spotlight on equality and diversity; the tension between ethics and commercial imperatives; the moral and socio-economic factors behind helping vulnerable groups and discuss the motivation behind entering the law and contributing meaningfully to it.

  • Business and technology

Join jargon free discussions on the future of the profession. Learn about the impact of the digital revolution from peers who are ahead of the pack; explore the management strategies needed to build high-performing teams and learn how in-house innovation can add value to a business.

  • Brexit and the Rule of Law

Listen to the latest analysis on the negotiations and find out what it all really means in practical terms. Discuss the commercial opportunities and operational challenges for Scotland’s business and legal sectors. What will be the impact on international trade; the regulation of legal services; migration; equality; freedom and human rights be for solicitors and their clients?

Fringe events will also run throughout the day including practical sessions designed to help share best practice and innovation, or book a surgery with an award winning senior partner to discover first-hand how to increase profits; successfully navigate your way through a merger or acquisition and plan for your succession.

The vibrant mix of keynote addresses, panel discussions, networking opportunities, streamed sessions and knowledge sharing making this the gold standard legal event of the year. We look forward to welcoming you on Tuesday 19 September 2017.
