The North East branch of Lawyers in Local Government (LLG) are delighted to announce that we will be hosting our biennial conference on Thursday 14th June 2018, in association with LLG Legal Training.

This will be a fantastic opportunity for delegates to network with colleagues at other authorities, and hear presentations from legal experts at leading national law firms.

Sponsors and exhibitors confirmed thus far include:

  • Bevan Brittan, DWF, DAC Beachcroft, Ward Hadaway, Womble Bond Dickinson, Freeths, Anthony Collins Solicitors and Trinity Chambers
  • Iken, Sellick Partnership and Lextox
  • Suki Binjal, the current LLG President and HHJ.G.Matthews QC, Designated Family Judge for Cleveland and South Durham

The conference will assist delegates to learn about:

  • How to avoid challenge in your decision making processes
  • Handling complaints
  • Trading and commercialisation
  • How GDPR affects your authority
  • A Judges’ view from the bench on child protection
  • The latest developments in property, planning and employment law
  • Hot topics across local government legal practice (including contracts and procurement, state aid, adult social care and governance and standards)

There will be a "Sponsors' Village" with free goodies to take away, food, drinks and the opportunity to catch up with old friends (and make new ones!). It promises to be a fantastic event, and we look forward to seeing you there.
