Informals Foundation Lectures 2015

Each year, the Informals’ Committee runs a series of lectures to introduce junior trainees to key areas in IP, and to help trainees at all levels to prepare for the UK and European exams.

The 2015 Informals’ Foundation Lectures begin on Monday 12 January 2015 at 5.30pm, at CIPA Hall. The introductory lecture will be given by Gwilym Roberts (Kilburn & Strode) and Stuart Forrest (Carpmaels & Ransford). The lectures will also be broadcast via WebEx for those who can’t attend in person. The WebEX login details will be circulated by CIPA prior to the lecture, and are also made available on the CIPA website: http://www.cipa.org.uk/pages/2015-Foundation-Lectures. In addition, recordings and notes will be made available on the CIPA website shortly after the lecture.
