Seminars

Temple Garden Chambers is committed to continuing professional development. We have presented CPD accredited seminars on all our practice areas in various formats. These can be held at the offices of those interested or in chambers.

In addition to our own seminars, members of chambers regularly speak at events and conferences arranged by other organisations.

We welcome requests to provide bespoke training to solicitors and other interested organisations. If you are interested in attending or arranging such seminars or events please contact us.

As the legal industry embraces remote working, our TGC Costs Team is hosting a series of Webinars via Zoom.  These will be interactive sessions that will be free to join.

Our first Webinar will be – Ask the TGC Costs Barristers!  Ask away on what concerns you, whether Covid-19 related or not. Our panel of costs specialists will be made up of Simon Browne QC, Mark James, James Laughland, Richard Wilkinson and Matt Waszak.

We would like participants to email us with any questions they have that we can discuss and debate, and hopefully provide you with a general steer and the best practice to adopt.

The session is intended to be relaxed, engaging and interactive. The Webinar will last approximately 45 minutes – 1hr and will be held  Thursday 21st May at 12 noon.

Please follow this quick and easy link to register -  https://tgchambers.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_AeIWI_HBQ1-M2cqhkruBzA.  After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

We welcome any questions (which will all be anonymised).  Please email these through to events@tgchambers.com.   There will also be the option to ask questions and interact during the webinar.

There will be a prize sent out for the most interesting question!

We very much hope that you will be able to join us on the 21st  May 2020.

In the recent case of Macdonald (By His Litigation Friend, Lindsay Macdonald) v Burton Martin Spencer J acknowledged that there was a need to record expert appointments in some higher value cases to protect litigants (mainly claimants) against experts who are ‘incompetent or worse’.
