Featuring sessions on the development of an entrepreneurship culture in Scotland, online business generation for young lawyers, an insight into what in-house counsel want and need from their advisers, how to progress as a young lawyer and how to build your brand as a young professional, it offers six hours' CPD for the rate of £65 (£45 for students) and welcomes leading speakers from both the legal profession and the wider business sector in Scotland.
These include Catherine Loughran, senior legal counsel at Skyscanner; Mairi Damer, WORD UP Communications; Cameron Adrain, of Frasia Wright Associates; Russell Dalgleish, from Exolta Capital Partners; Chris Davidson, of Moore Legal Technology; Stephen Harrower, Ross Cullen and Alison Fitzsimons, from Tilney BestInvest; and Josh Quigley, The Tartan Explorer.
The keynote address will be given by Frances McMenamin QC, with the title "20 years of progression: lessons learned and looking towards the next".
The conference is sponsored by Scott & Co.
