The Professional Paralegal
21 April 2016
Wybston Lakes Executive Centre
Great North Road, Wybston
The Professional Paralegal Register (PPR) is delighted to invite ILSPA members to attend the first-ever Paralegal Conference to have been organised in England and Wales. A special rate of £40 per ticket is available for ILSPA members.
Legal Secretaries who perform any kind of legal work are, by definition, Paralegals. The PPR recognises that many Legal Secretaries undertake substantial legal work and could benefit from further professional recognition as a PPR member.
The conference has an expert panel of speakers, chaired by Derek Wood, CBE, QC, as follows: Steve Green (Chair of the Office of Legal Complaints); Elisabeth Davies (Chair of Legal Services Consumer Panel); Espe Fuentes (Head of Legal Operations, Which? Legal); Becky Huxley-Binns (Vice Provost at the University of Law); Lindsy McGowan (Specialist Paralegal Recruiter); and Chris White (Founder of Aspiring Solicitors).
The conference will also offer eight workshops, an exhibition and the chance to network.
Rita Leat (Managing Director of the PPR) commented:
“As with all Paralegals, Legal Secretaries are vital to the success of legal service provision in the UK and deserve recognition for their dedication and efforts to provide such a professional service. I would encourage ILSPA members to come and see for themselves what the PPR could do for them and their businesses”.
