Community Care Live’s legal learning seminars are now no longer available at our early bird rate.
You can book yourself a slot on these high-quality sessions at our standard rate of £29+ VAT.
Leading lawyers and legal trainers will be providing vital guidance on issues including the inherent jurisdiction of the High Court, special guardianship, sibling placements and the latest Mental Capacity Act case law, at this year’s event, on 15-16 October.
Anyone who registers for the event – which is free for social workers and others in specified roles in the sector – can book themselves on our legal sessions, including on arrival at the event, though the price then goes up to £35 plus VAT per session.
