Further information

Each course in the “Ten Important Pointers” series of courses lasts one hour, comprising fifty minutes of explanation from the speaker and allowing ten minutes for questions.

A version of the course lasting 1½ hours is also available.  This incorporates in addition some short case studies and comparative drafting for the participants to discuss at intervals during the course.  Specimen solutions for the case studies can be provided at the end of the session.

Courses are not dependent upon one another.  They can be presented individually or as a series, and in any order.  Discounts are available where three or more courses are booked together (see below).

These courses are designed to be presented as face-to-face training sessions within a law firm, or within a group of law firms.

It will clearly not be possible in the available time to cover the whole of the relevant topic in detail.  A hand-out will be provided, which will list any recent cases on the topic together with sources of further information such as relevant material in leading textbooks and on the PLC website.
