The fight against modern slavery
Wednesday 8th December, 10:00 – 11:00

40 million people are estimated to be trapped in modern slavery worldwide. 1 in 4 of them are children. 71% are women and girls. 10,000+ were identified as potential victims by the authorities in the UK in 2019. Join us as we welcome guest speakers and senior counsel to discuss the critical role you can play as senior counsel in helping in the fight against modern slavery. This is not only a moral obligation it is a regulatory obligation.

The effective leader. How to lead amid disruption and complexity
Wednesday 26th January, 10:00 – 11:00

Now more than ever, leaders in all organisations face challenges. As lawyers, your challenges are often more complex and less forgiving than those faced by other senior leaders. Jumping from giving strategic advice to safeguarding the business in the here and now – an adaptable and agile leadership style can be crucial. In this session we will explore the concept of effective leadership, hearing from subject matter experts and your peers sharing their insights and practical advice from the coalface.
