Since the launch of our dedicated London Seminar Programme - On Course - in the Autumn of 2014,
we have seen a steady rise in the uptake for our already popular seminars. We are therefore delighted
to introduce you to the Spring/Summer edition of On Course, providing you with a broad range of
seminars over the next six months.
In putting the programme together, we have listened to your feedback, combining specific industry
and sector knowledge with specific legal updates. You will see seminars hosted by our Shipping,
Commercial Disputes, Financial Industries, and Labour & Employment Groups as well as a series of
three seminars from our newly formed Industry Group – Entertainment and Media. Each session will be
led by leading lawyers in the field, combined where appropriate, with expert outside speakers.
We look forward to welcoming you to our seminars and indeed to hearing from you if there are
particular themes you would like us to explore in this or in future series.
