Thank you to all those who attended the first two Foundation Lectures so far (or watched the webinar)!
There is a change to the timetable with regard to next week’s lecture. The lecture will now take place on Tuesday 24 January 2017.
Please find below the updated timetable.
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!
We look forward to seeing you there,
Michelle and Kate
