Whilst we are unable to meet in person at Labour Party Conference this year, here at the Society of Labour Lawyers we are determined to ensure that legal and justice issues remain at the forefront of the party’s agenda.
We’re therefore pleased to invite you and party members across the country to our three online fringe events.
With an exciting line-up of speakers, there’s something for everyone – and an opportunity to participate in Q&As with our esteemed panellists.
We’re hosting all of our events on Zoom, outside of the party’s online conference platform ‘Connected’, and welcome all to join us – so please do share these sign up links with anyone who may be interested.
