EDINBURGH ADD-ON PROGRAM FOR LAWYERS

27-31 March 2022
For many years, our participants have asked to expand our program into other UK cities beyond London. In 2022, we are pleased to announce an add-on program for both lawyers and their guests in Edinburgh. We expect to add additional details to our Edinburgh itinerary, but lawyers can expect a truly unique experience in Scotland. Due to the bespoke nature of our plans in Edinburgh, we must limit our registration to 12 participants and is only open to participants of the London program.

The program fee for the Edinburgh Add On program is $1995.00. This fee covers train transportation from London to Edinburgh on Sunday, 27 March 2022, all the education programs, materials, luncheons, and evening activities included in the program agenda.
