The University of Birmingham, in partnership with No5 Chambers and Mills & Reeve LLP,  is delighted to launch the first CEPLER event.

A major new initiative from Birmingham Law School, CEPLER aims to foster greater collaboration with the professional legal community to increase vocational opportunities for our students and develop a research agenda that is meaningful and relevant to legal practitioners.

The conference includes two plenary sessions:

  • Legal Aid Reforms, presented by Lord Bach of Lutterworth

The delegates can then select from three specialist Panel Sessions:

  • Civil Litigation and the Jackson Reforms (featuring Robert Khan, Colin Ettinger and Dr. Claire McIvor)
  • The Future of Family Justice (featuring Jo Miles, Stephen Abberley and Lisa Parkinson)

The Conference is held at the Nicholson Building
