5 Law Society CPD Points

Date: 16 February 2011

Venue: The Royal Automobile Club, Pall Mall, London, SW1

Chairman: David Evans

The annual Motor Law Conference brings you speakers and discussion on all the current legal issues and provides an excellent opportunity for networking with industry colleagues.

Key areas for discussion will include the latest aspects of the block exemption, discussion on competition law and professional privilege, intellectual property issues, consumer rights and the latest industry cases in consumer law.

As usual we have assembled a team of expert speakers under our regular chairman, David Evans, who will consider how the motor industry is adapting or should adapt to deal with these challenges. The conference will be the ideal opportunity for delegates, lawyers and non-lawyers alike, to meet colleagues and join in the debate. Ms Maria Rehbinder, who succeeded Paolo Cesarini at the beginning of the year, as the Head of Unit E in the Competition Directorate of the European Commission has kindly agreed to give our keynote dspeech.
