Society of Licensed Conveyancers Announces Speakers for This Year’s Conference

The organisations will hold their annual conference and dinner on Wednesday 23rd November at the Riverside Centre in Derby.

The following speakers have already confirmed that they will be present at the event:

  • Neil Buckley – CEO of the Legal Services Board
  • Graham Farrant – CEO at the Land Registry
  • Dame Janet Paraskeva and Sheila Kumar – Chair and CEO of the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC)
  • June Deasy – Head of Policy at the Council of Mortgage Lenders
  • Emma Vigus – Director of PI Insurance at Howden Group
  • Hannah Mackinlay – of Propertylaw.guru

The conference dinner has grown so much in popularity that the SLC and BLG have moved to a new venue for the evening events following the conference. This year’s dinner will be held at the iPro Stadium (home of Derby County FC).

The events are open to all legal professionals and offer an opportunity for all to ensure that Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training for the year is being met.

The Chairman of the SLC, Simon Law, says: “We are looking for a lot of interaction between the speakers and delegates this year, as the world of conveyancing gets ever more complex. As the SLC has continued to grow in numbers and influence, we are delighted once again to be working with the BLG, whose outreach in the profession also continues to grow.”

The founder of the BLG, Rob Hailstone, adds: “The conference provides a great opportunity not just for the excellent and varied agenda on offer, but also to network with members and fellow professionals. I am really pleased that the BLG will team up with the SLC once again this year, in the only event in the conference calendar organised by conveyancers for conveyancers.”

The SLC is the professional body that represents the licensed conveyancer profession. It works with the CLC, as well as other stakeholders, such as Government departments, industry representative bodies, consumer organisations and the media.
