SLC logoThe Society of Licensed Conveyancers (SLC) is delighted to announce that the dates and venues for the SLC Spring Road Shows for 2016 have now been confirmed.

Tuesday April 26th – Cambridge United Football Club

Wednesday May 4th –Howdens Group Office, London

Wednesday May 18th – Mercure Hotel, Cardiff

Tuesday May 24th – Macdonald Hotel, Manchester

The Spring Road Shows this year are focused on the subjects of fraud and cybercrime with particular reference to the conveyancing process and measures that conveyancers can take to mitigate these risks.

These subjects have never been of greater prominence for the legal profession and the Road Shows are a great opportunity for all conveyancers, regardless of qualifications, to hear first hand from experts on these subjects.

The speakers for Cambridge will include Neil Scriven from Barclays Bank, Paul Tucker from Lawyer Checker, Ed Powell from Safe Move, as well as Tom Horrocks from Cpm21 focusing on cybercrime and the conveyancing process. The Society will also launch its new cybercrime insurance policy, provided by Howdens, at the Road Shows.

Simon Law, SLC Chairman said, ‘Much has been said and written about fraud and cyber crime in recent times. They are subjects which affect so many aspects of everyday life, not just lawyers and in particular conveyancers. The problem is that the criminal element will always find new ways to get around the protective measures and systems that are constantly being developed. The Spring Road shows this year will be dedicated to the subjects of fraud and cybercrime and will be focused on conveyancing.’

The Roadshows are free for members to attend and priced at £75.00 for non-members.

The road shows will start at 9:45 and run to 3 pm and will carry 4 CPD points. Lunch will be provided.
