It will take place at the St George’s Centre (close to Leeds Central Station). A live-streaming of the event is also planned for those unable to join us ‘in person’.As with previous conferences our aim is to maximise discussion on key social care legal issues – including gaining feedback on past research and ideas for future research. It is hoped that the event will also provide time for those attending to network and share information. Please contact the event organiser to let them know about any particular need (for example, for access and / or a special dietary need). Please specify which session you would prefer when signing up, ie virtually or at the St Georges Centre.Joining instructions will be sent 24 hours before the event via email once you have registered. All welcome. This is a free event, though registration is required via Eventbrite.
