ABC real estate webinar training

The essential building blocks: ABC webinar training - series two

Last year we delivered the first series of ABC training webinars designed for our corporate occupier clients. Following your positive feedback on that programme, we are pleased to offer a new season of webinars which follow a similar format, but that also include a number of topics suggested by you.

These webinars recognise that those who work in legal teams have a wide variety of roles and, as a result, differing requirements when it comes to how much they need to know about property law. 

Our ABC training reflects this diversity by delivering short (30 mins) webinars that are aimed at three different levels.

A. Introductory level – for those with little or no property experience;

B. Intermediate - for those who know the basics of property law but want a little more on certain key areas; and

C. Advanced - for those are fully familiar with key areas of property law but are interested in looking at specifics in greater detail in certain areas.
