TONY TRAVERS TO ADDRESS LGG'S NEW CHIEF LEGAL OFFICERS SUMMIT
When it comes to commentators on local government, there are few who command as much respect for their knowledge and insight than the London School of Economics’ Tony Travers.
A regular on television and radio and a frequent contributor to newspapers and magazines, Professor Travers will be the keynote speaker at LGG’s new Chief Legal Officers Summit to be held in Birmingham in June and London in July.
Replacing the former monitoring officers conference, this new event will cover a broad range of issues and topics over the course of a packed day in which the Localism Bill will be a key topic of discussion as will the future of legal services in the public sector, while Tony Travers will look at the economic context for public service provision in the current fiscal climate.
Local government professionals will be discussing their experiences (to date) of shared legal services, there will be an insight into employment issues in an age of austerity, a review of trading powers under the general power of competence, and a panel of experts will be discussing life after Standards for England.
The event will be chaired by Kirsty Cole from Newark and Sherwood District Council, while speakers will include ACSeS president and vice president Susan Tovey and Phil McCourt, representatives from Eversheds, Bevan Brittan, Dickinson Dees and Wragge & Co, Claer Lloyd-Jones, chair of standards at the Greater London Authority, as well as leading figures representing local authorities.
LGG’s new Chief Legal Officers Summit will be held at the offices of Wragge & Co in Birmingham on June 27 and at Bevan Brittan in London on July 5.
