From January through to April, our employment academy will provide an update on the latest hot topics affecting your business. The academy is aimed at less experienced in-house employment lawyers and HR professionals; the objective is to provide guidance on wellknown employment law documents and processes to ensure attendees understand the significance of all of their provisions and steps. Our “Back from a break?” sessions are aimed at in-house employment lawyers and HR professionals who may have been away from the office for a while and require an update on recent developments.
In January, experts in the technology sector will provide an introduction to cryptocurrencies and discuss the potential applications of the block chain technology for financial institutions.

There are a number of sessions taking place over the course of the week (March 7 – March 10) which can be booked individually or as a course.
