Seminars at Serjeants’ Inn

We are frequently called upon as commentators in our fields: in the last 12 months our members have given papers at institutions including the Houses of Parliament, the Home Office, the College of Policing and St George’s, University of London. Our barristers have also been invited to speak at events such as the AvMA and Association of Police Lawyers annual conferences, as well as for numerous client firms.

We offer a rolling programme of seminars and case surgeries as well as providing regular briefing notes and other articles and updates for clients.

The fact that – in an innovative move – we have invested in a dedicated client care team means that we are particularly well placed to discuss and fulfil client requirements on training and numerous other matters. For full details please contact our Client Care Executive, Isabel Biggs.

Alternatively, if you wish to attend any of our in-house seminars as detailed here from time to time, please complete the registration form and we will be in touch shortly to confirm your place.
