The CIPA Informals Foundation Lecture series will begin on 9 January 2017 and provide an introduction to many of the topics covered by the Foundation Exams.
The lectures will take place in CIPA Hall at 95 Chancery Lane and will begin at 5.30 PM.
They will also be streamed live via webinar (details on how to access these to follow).
After the lectures we will all be heading to a nearby pub which will provide a good opportunity to meet other trainees and chat to the lecturers!
The timetable for the lectures is as follows. Any changes to this will be posted on the Yellowsheet blog (https://yellowsheet.wordpress.com/) so keep an eye out!
We look forward to seeing you there,
Michelle and Kate
