UK legal events, training and webinars

Upcoming events, webinars and training

  • Current developments in employment law - returning to business as normal?

    As vaccine programmes promise new hope, employers and the Government are looking to move beyond the pandemic and plan for the future - a future outside the European Union. Will the Government return to its employment manifesto commitments, or has COVID-19 reset policy priorities? What is achievable? How will the pandemic change HR practices in the long term?
  • European HR - managing multi-jurisdictional projects

    Managing teams of people is challenging at the best of times. Working across European borders in multiple jurisdictions is even more difficult due to cultural and legal differences. Heavily regulated employment law regimes that differ significantly in their approach can also pose additional challenges, particularly in light of the COVID-19 crisis and the severe impact it is having on economies across the globe.
  • French employment law training

    Based on the Napoleonic code and amended by statute ever since, French employment law is markedly different from the UK’s.
  • German employment law training

    Germany is a major trading partner for many countries throughout the world, not to mention the most important single market in the European Union.
  • In-house Counsel Legal Updates

    We are delighted to invite you to our first webinar series of In-house Counsel legal updates. We will be running 20 minute updates with Q&A on a range of topics. We understand what it takes to be in-house. We know the pressures you are under and the issues you have to tackle on a daily basis. These free events are about giving you the knowledge, news and networking opportunities to help you in your roles. They have proved very popular in the past, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
  • Labor and employee relations - the law and best practice for maintaining constructive relations

    Many senior managers lack experience of working with unions and employee representatives. This course is designed to address this need in a virtual format, providing a chance to learn from specialist labour lawyers with extensive practical experience of dealing with industrial relations issues both in the public and private sector.
  • Pensions education sector annual conference 2021

    Following the success of our pensions education sector conferences in 2019 and 2020, we will be holding our 2021 conference in our Birmingham office (subject to Covid19 government guidelines)
  • Pensions topical issues webinar

    The Regulator has been very busy of late. Since the Pension Schemes Act 2021 received royal assent in February, it has produced a steady stream (more like a river) of consultations, draft regulations and other publications. Many of these will require material changes to the way occupational pension schemes operate.
  • Principles of employment law in Asia-Pacific

    This course is aimed at employers who need a broad overview of the employment landscape in Asia-Pacific. Unlike the EU, where directives are implemented in each country but follow common principles, Asia-Pacific jurisdictions take very different approaches to HR legal issues. Even Hong Kong and China, which are one country, operate HR legal regimes which are polar opposites.
  • Spanish employment law training

    Spanish and UK labour systems differ greatly. Spanish employment law is mainly based on the regulations contained in the Collective Bargaining Agreement in force in the market sector. Sometimes a specific CBA can be negotiated for one company with the trade unions and employee representatives.
