Four Jurisdictions Conference, Edinburgh, Fri 10 – Sun 12 May 2019

This year the Four Jurisdictions Conference is being held in Edinburgh. This is a unique event organised annually between Middle Temple and Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland. It is a wonderful opportunity to meet colleagues from those other jurisdictions to discuss topics of interest and to socialise. It is also a great opportunity to meet other members of MT and get to know them better.

Middle Temple wishes to assist its younger members in attending this interesting event, and we are therefore making available subventions to ten Junior/Pupil members on a “first come, first served” basis, to help with their expenses (conference rate, travel and accommodation).  This subvention will only be made available to Junior/Pupil members who wish to attend the full conference.

The published deadline for registering is Friday 22 March.  However, the hosts will allow extra time and we are also asking whether they will extend the deadline further.  Edinburgh has suggested a number of local hotels in the conference pack, although there are no preferential rates being offered. Edinburgh also has lots of hostels and cheaper accommodation available.

If you are aware of any Junior/Pupil members who might be interested, please let them know this assistance is available and ask them to contact Rachel Pydiah on 020 7427 4803 or at r.pydiah@middletemple.org.uk to express their interest at taking this up as this offer is limited. As noted above, the offer is on a “first come, first served” basis.

I wish to confirm we only have ten subventions available and the Junior/Pupil member will need to register, pay and attend the entire conference for the subvention to be paid after the event.
