I thought the speakers were all engaging and I genuinely thought this was the best Family Law Update course I've been on.
I really enjoyed this conference, and it ended up with me buying a At 'e' Glance. It was a good opportunity to exchange views, hear soundings from other professionals and reflect on the state of the law. Class legal still top of the class.
Overall it was a really interesting conference providing much food for thought. Brilliantly chaired by Mostyn J!
Content was excellent . Felt really engaged with the lectures due to their excellent delivery .
Put simply, this is the stand out 'money work' training event of the year. The consistent high quality of the speakers (and Chairs) and the range of subject matters provide delegates with intellectually stimulating and illuminating insights into the cutting edge of this practice area. Outstanding!
