At any one time there are always a number of interesting upcoming legal costs conferences. Unfortunately, these often come at a fairly eye watering price.
If I told you there was a full-day costs conference (5.5 CPD hours) in London with speakers including a number of specialist costs counsel such as Gordon Wignall, Simon Brown and Roger Mallalieu, with other prominent speakers including Kerry Underwood, Michael Bacon and David Marshall, you would expect a fairly hefty price. If I told you that the price was only £199 plus VAT you would probably agree this will be the best value paid for costs conference of the year. If I then told you that readers of the Legal Costs Blog can secure a £40 discount, bringing this down to £159 plus VAT, I would expect a mad dash for places.
But you will have to be quick as the conference is on 31 March 2011 and places are limited.
Full conference programme and booking details available here: Costs, Jackson, CFAs and ATE Insurance.
Those of us costs lawyers who attended the Association of Costs Lawyers' National Conference and who also attend this conference will have managed to meet our CPD requirements by the end of March. After that we can put our feet up for the rest of the year and give no further thought to the subject.
