Tuesday 19 September, 9.15am – 5.30pm, Edinburgh International Conference Centre


This year the Law Society of Scotland’s Annual Conference places the power of the law to work for the greater good and the motivations – simple or inspirational – with which we all started out in the legal profession firmly in the spotlight.

Keynote speakers include the Lord Advocate James Wolffe QC on maintaining the rule of law and the interests of justice in a time of change; Lord President of the Court of Session Lord Carloway reflecting on the future of the Scottish courts; Burness Paull chairman Philip Rodney asking just where Scottish businesses go from here in a world of seemingly unsolvable problems and Olympic gold medallist Dame Katherine Grainger sharing the secrets of her incredible success.

Away from the main stage, there is a wide variety of panel sessions to choose from, addressing topics from workplace revolutionising legal technology; helping the vulnerable and those in most need; and equality and diversity with panellists including Karyn McCluskey, Aamer Anwar, Paul Brown and Jolyon Maugham QC to mention just a few.

The conference provides six hours of verifiable CPD and there will also be the opportunity to visit the Law Society of Scotland’s Accredited Paralegal stand, as well as many other exhibitors.
