Masterclass series

Our masterclass series aims to develop the skills and knowledge of practitioners who already have some experience in or understanding of a practice area, to a more advanced level.

Masterclasses are typically offered as a half day event presented by experienced practitioners, accredited specialists, barristers and/or members of the judiciary.

Flexible learning options

Our professional development events are offered in a variety of different formats to suit your needs and learning preferences.

Face-to-face conferences, workshop and lectures are a great way to learn from the experts and connect with your peers. If you can’t make it to a session, many of our conferences and workshops are filmed and are available for purchase to view on-demand. We also host livecast sessions, accessible from any computer tablet or mobile device.
