Upcoming Events

October 11th, 2023 – Document Excellence Day

In-person (London)/Virtual

This year our annual Document Excellence Day has a focus on Accessibility and Adaptability, so it seems fitting that this should be a hybrid event – available both virtually, and for anyone able to be in London, in-person.  There are still spaces left and registration is now open to non-members. 


The activities will start with Registration for the In-Person event at 13:15 and virtually at 13:30 BST / 14:30 CET / 08:30 EDT / 05:30 PDT.  The in-Person event will be held at Allen & Overy, One Bishops Square. London, E1 6AD and there will be an opportunity to join us for networking at the same venue.

We have an interesting programme lined up including:

Shalni Sood – Director of Philanthropy and Callum Russell – Trustee at the Royal Society for Blind Children and Founder of Crystal Eyes will talk about the vital importance of considering the vision impaired in the workplace.

Frederik Dessau (Chief Experience Officer) and Morten Hald Mortensen (CTO, Partner) – Omnidocs will give an insight into what accessibility is all about in the document space.

Katie Humphries (Founder) – Accessibility Made Easy will show us how to make our documents more accessible so everyone, no matter their ability, can access them.

Rachel Baiden (Global Technology Training Manager and LTC4 Contributing and Board Member), Gill Garrod (Technology Trainer) – Squire Patton Boggs and Chloe Parfitt (Digital Learning Manager) and Sally Short (Digital Learning Specialist) – Burgess Salmon will discuss how they have developed a robust framework and ensured knowledge is shared across the training team.

During the break there will be some great tips on managing your emails from Heather Morrow (Leob) and Kelly Taylor (Milbank) to watch for virtual attendees (which will also be made available on the website after the event.


November 9th, 2023 – Law Firm Risk Management: the safe and effective use of artificial intelligence (AI) 

In-person (London)/Virtual GMT / 16:00  EDT / 11:00

For our final event of the year we are thrilled to welcome two partners from Kingsley Napley –  Jessica Clay a partner in the Regulatory team and Emily Carter a partner in the Public Law team.

Advancement of artificial intelligence (particularly generative AI and the use of large language models) is fast-paced, and the landscape and what is out there and its capabilities is forever changing. Getting to a place where AI is used safely and effectively, but where the boundaries of innovation can be pushed, is a conundrum that law firms need to start unpicking.

During this session, we will look at what law firms need to be thinking about – with a focus on both data privacy and the regulatory landscape – and the infrastructure and risk management strategies that firms need to implement to reap the benefits and harness the potential of AI.

Watch out for the registration for this event which will be coming soon.
