Dame Janet Paraskeva to headline at SLC/BLG Conference

Spaces filling up fast for 5th annual Conference hosted by Paul Lewis

The Society of Licensed Conveyancers (SLC) and the Bold Legal Group (BLG) have announced that Dame Janet Paraskeva the recently appointed Chair of the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) will deliver the keynote speech at the Conference this year which will be held on Wednesday 18th November in Derby. Against a backdrop of some uncertainty and differences of views on the future of legal services regulation, Dame Janet will provide her unique perspective on the subject. With many conveyancing solicitors considering a change of regulator to the CLC, Dame Janet, together with Sheila Kumar, the CLC’s Chief Executive will be able to provide much food for thought for delegates.

The Conference this year is sponsored by PSG, Future Climate Info, Redbrick Solutions and Howdens, and there is also a full exhibition with many and varied stands.

A packed agenda also includes Graham Farrant the new Chief Executive of the Land Registry, the renowned property expert Kate Faulkner and Paul Broadhead from the Building Societies Association. All three will participate in panel discussions so that delegates have the chance to raise issues from the floor. There will also be presentations on new processes and technologies such as Gazeal , Free2convey and Conveyancing Map, ensuring there is something in this Conference for every conveyancer in the country whether a Licensed Conveyancer, Solicitor or Legal Executive.

Simon Law, Chairman of the SLC said: “I am delighted that Dame Janet and Sheila Kumar will both be presenting at this year’s Conference which will provide a great opportunity for Licensed Conveyancers to connect with their regulator. It will also be a great opportunity for conveyancing solicitors to hear about what regulation by the CLC might mean for them if they have an interest in converting. The SLC/BLG conference is unique as it is organised by conveyancers for conveyancers.”

Rob Hailstone, Founder and CEO of BLG commented: “The Bold Legal Group is pleased once again to partner with the SLC in staging this Conference which brings together the conveyancing community in a unique way. Apart from the packed Conference agenda, the informal dinner the evening before the Conference, and the various breaks during the day as well as the panel sessions and discussions provide a great opportunity for a rich and meaningful dialogue amongst the Conveyancing profession.”

The Conference is free for SLC members to attend and also for the first representative from each BLG member firm and is priced at the very reasonable rate of £100 for non-members.
