The deregulation of the legal services market and the overhaul of litigation costs and funding following the Jackson Review has made the marketplace for litigators, mediators and arbitrators more challenging than it has ever been.
The Law Society's Civil Justice Section will provide the support, information and insight you need to understand the changes and how they will affect you, and to ensure that your dispute resolution department or team remains a profitable and central part of your business.
Membership offers you regular news, commentary and updates on key civil justice issues, together with training and developmental opportunities in the areas of most importance to practitioners.
You will also have the opportunity to contribute your views to the Section's executive committee, and to join the committee to make your voice heard on civil justice policy and practice.
As a Civil Justice Section member, you will benefit from a range of products and services designed to keep you up to date and provide specialist information, support and guidance tailored to your needs, including:
Join expert speakers such as Mr Justice Ramsey, Gordon Exall, Tony Guise and Keith Etherington for a detailed examination of the pressing issues affecting litigators, which aims to cut through the confusion and uncertainty currently afflicting our profession.
This is a free event for Section members, and will give you 2.25 hours of CPD.
