Dispute resolution, be it litigation, arbitration, adjudication, mediation etc., in the UK has traditionally been dominated by middle-aged, middle-class, white British males. But it is changing. There are now more women than men training as solicitors and opportunities for other practitioners are presenting themselves all the time. Our panel of speakers will explore the rapidly developing changes which are providing diversification and career progression for all practitioners.
Ruth Wilkinson, Partner at Clarkslegal has kindly agreed to Chair this event.
