In brief: Discussion seminar on SIF funds shortfall

A seminar to discuss how to deal with the Solicitors Indemnity Fund shortfall is being organised by the Law Society presidential election ticket of Phillip Sycamore, Michael Mathews and Robert Sayer. The seminar, to be held on 11 July at a London venue yet to be confirmed, will discuss what has led to a £454m shortfall in SIF funds and what the future holds. The options open to the profession will also be discussed with the organisers who are hoping to attract solicitors from a wide range of firms.
