To mark this final speaker announcement, for a limited time only Legal Cheek is offering an exclusive two delegate tickets for £400 + VAT deal. The offer is open until 11:59pm on Friday 20 April — and can be accessed here.

The Future of Legal Education and Training Conference takes place on Wednesday 23 May 2018 across three interlinked spaces at Kings Place London, the glamorous events space at King’s Cross that houses The Guardian on its upper floors, and neighbours Google’s new office.

Running from 8:30am until 5:30pm, the Conference is designed to prepare law firm graduate recruitment and learning & development teams for the SQE and other reforms. Delegates will be encouraged to think creatively, through a combination of TED-style talks, short interactive discussion points and Question Time-style panel discussions, about what comes next.
