Over 250 delegates attend flagship Liverpool conference

November 22, 2013

Over 250 delegates from throughout the UK attended yesterday’s Local Government and Social Housing conference hosted by Exchange Chambers.

The annual event, now in its ninth year, was held at Liverpool Town Hall.

Delegates were able to attend a range of seminars throughout the day and were able to exchange their own experiences of litigation with each other during informal discussions over lunch in the main ballroom at the Town Hall.

The 16 speakers from Exchange Chambers – independently recognised by the independent guide to the legal profession as a leading Chambers in the fields of local government law and social housing law (Chambers UK 2013 and 2014) – covered areas as diverse as anti-social behaviour, housing management and human rights, criminal law, employment law, Court of Protection and personal injury.

Commenting on the day, Roy Finney, Practice Manager at Exchange Chambers and lead clerk for the local government and social housing department, said:

“This conference gets bigger and better every year.

“While a number of the delegates have been attending for a number of years and are long standing supporters of Chambers, we were delighted to see so many new faces at this year’s event.  The attendance and feedback reflects the independently recognised expertise and popularity of our barristers in these areas of work.”
