Agricultural Holdings Law affects many millions of pounds worth of land across Scotland and can have significant effects upon numbers of ‘commercial’ land transactions.
This innovative and thematic seminar programme has been designed jointly by the Faculty of Advocates and the Law Society of Scotland. No seminar quite like this has taken place for many years.
We invite counsel and solicitors to join together amongst the acknowledged multi-disciplinary experts in this important area of law for guidance on each possible stage of the birth, life and death of an agricultural lease.
By attending to this course, you’ll get a comprehensive grounding in Agricultural Holdings Law, suitable for those with little knowledge of the subject, but also an invaluable refresher and overview for those who already practice in the area.
This is a unique, one-off, tailored opportunity to learn from the experts and peers across Agricultural Law practice in Scotland.
