Arnot Manderson Advocates are delighted to announce the next instalment in their series of quarterly seminars – The Four Seasons. This “Spring” edition of the series is dedicated to Property Law.

The Seminars will qualify for 2 hours of CPD. These events are free but places are limited.

The high level of interest in previous Four Seasons editions has seen the events sell out quickly. We again anticipate high demand so to ensure your attendance you are required to book a place on our AM Events Booking system which can be found here or via the ‘News and events’ section of our website
