The University of Birmingham, in partnership with No5 Chambers and Mills & Reeve LLP, 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:

  • Judicial Proposals for the Modernisation of the Family Justice System, presented by The Honourable Mr Justice Ryder

Followed by the choice of three specialist Panel Sessions:
