DELEGATE fees for this year's Law Society conference are set to be slashed following a sponsorship deal between Chancery Lane and the Royal Bank of Scotland.
The deal, worth £60,000, means registration fees will be cut to a maximum of £160, compared to about £200 last year.
The society hopes to build up delegate numbers and to improve on previous years' attendance.
Paul Pharaoh, chair of the society's conference committee, says average attendance numbers in previous years have stood at a core of 300 fee-paying delegates (about 800 delegates in all).
Pharaoh says this year's event at the Birmingham
International Convention Centre, on 6 to 7 October, will be divided into two strands, looking at the challenges to high street practices and "state of the art" practice management.
He says the conference, streamlined into a two-day affair as of last year, will be "affordable, not time-consuming and will cover subjects which are both topical and relevant".
The programme includes a plenary session with Lord Woolf on civil justice, sessions on making high street practices profitable and showing how to compete for business. There will also be the traditional 'Question time' session, chaired by BBC presenter Will Hanrahan.
