The Conveyancing Association (CA) has revealed the full agenda for its 2023 Annual Conference which is being held on the 7th of February in London.

Next month’s venue is the Leonardo Royal Hotel in the heart of the City of London, overlooked by St Paul’s Cathedral.

Under the title, ‘Change is Coming’, the 2023 Conference will be introduced by CA non-executive chair, Nicky Heathcote and conference chair, Eddie Goldsmith, before keynote speaker, Professor Richard Susskind OBE reviews what has been happening in the legal profession over the last few years, and what is in store for the future, in his session entitled, ‘Change is coming or already here?’

Heathcote said: “We are now just a few weeks away from our 2023 Annual Conference and we have finalised all our sessions for the day.

“It is a full agenda consisting of keynote speeches and panel debates, all with ample opportunity for our delegates to take part in the sessions.

“The overriding theme is to look ahead to what is coming over the horizon and to provide a roadmap for conveyancing firms with regards to how best they can prepare for the inevitable change and how they can thrive in the future.

“We’ve managed to assemble an excellent array of speakers and panel debate participants, who will provide a range of fresh analysis based on their experience of the sector and how it might develop in the years ahead.

“At the same time, we have Professor Richard Susskind returning to give his own update on what has changed in the years since he last attended the Conference, and where those developments take us next.”

During the day there will also be a presentation from Nick Chadbourne, CEO of Conference Headline Sponsors, LMS.

The Conference itself will finish with a round-up and closing remarks from Professor Susskind and Eddie Goldsmith.
