CPD-Save the Dates

Please check here regularly for dates of upcoming MLA-CPD seminars. As well, we we will provide links to some non-MLA CPD seminars that will be held in the London area. For those links, registrations should be placed with the body organizing the event as these are not Middlesex Law Association seminars.

Stay tuned for further updates and registration information closer to the dates.
