We are pleased to announce that tickets are now on sale for our annual Lewin Conference, to be held on Wednesday 19 June 2024 at The Law Society in London, presented by Lynton Tucker and Nicholas Le Poidevin KC, editors of Lewin on Trusts. The event will be followed by a drinks reception and book launch.

One of our three flagship annual conferences, the Lewin Conference celebrates Lewin, New Square Chambers’ seminal work, now in its 20th edition, complemented by a recently published 1st supplement. It is considered the leading publication on trusts by the UK’s most distinguished practitioners and academics.

This year’s conference focuses on recent decisions.  It features our guest speaker HH Hazel Marshall KCLt Bailiff of Guernsey and for the first time includes panel discussions between members of Chambers. Attendees will also explore an illustrative problem case for examination.

Registration is from 1:30pm, with the conference starting promptly at 2:00pm. Refreshments will be available throughout and there will be drinks and bowl food from 5:15pm until the event closes at 7:30pm.

We hope you can join us.
