The Lord Chancellor's Department (LCD) is sponsoring a three-day international conference on administrative justice in Bristol. Geoff Hoon MP, the LCD's parliamentary secretary, will address the conference, which will be held in the Grand Hotel from 26 to 2November. Lord Woolf will be guest of honour. Hoon said the conference would promote ways of resolving disputes other than through the courts. Government officials, judicial officers, practitioners, academics and foreign visitors with relevant experience will take part in the conference.
