We are delighted to announce updates to this year’s Coram Conference. The theme will be 2020 vision.
Our keynote address will be given by Mr. Justice Keehan, commencing at 9:30am.
After that, we will hold sessions in two rooms throughout the day, allowing delegates to choose a programme to suit their interests. We would like to thank our guest speakers Sally Harrison QC (St. Johns Buildings), Suzanne Kingston (Mills & Reeve), Daniel Grainge (Kreston Reeves) and Bernadette Heron (NYAS) for joining us on the day to deliver their practical insight.
Further guest speakers will be announced closer to the date.
Coram Conference is an annual family law Conference held in London. Each year we focus on a set of hot topics in family law, including current issues in public child, finance and private client, alternative families, and COP. Sessions are led by our team of knowledgeable family law barristers and are often paired with guest speakers or panellist discussions.
