Law Firm Launches Free Law OnLine

Burnetts in Carlisle, Newcastle and West Cumbria has launched a new programme of free online seminars.

Burnetts in Carlisle, Newcastle and West Cumbria has launched a new programme of free online seminars.

The hour-long, live webinars will give the law firm the opportunity to share its expertise across the North without delegates having to travel long distances to attend face to face briefings.

The events will take place over lunch on the last Thursday of each month with the first session on 1pm – 2pm on 27th October. October’s focus will be Retirement and the Equality Act when Employment Lawyers will be explaining how the changes brought about by removal of the compulsory retirement age will impact on employers trying to deal with retirement issues.

On November 24th Partner Joanne Stronach will be giving an Introduction to Freedom of Information and in January 2012 Partner Vaughan Jones will be talking about Websites and the Law.

As well as jargon-free presentations, there will be also plenty of opportunities for question time and audience interaction through polls and an online chat facility.

Burnetts’ Managing Partner Tom Leach said, “We want to make sure that our clients across Cumbria and Northern England have easy access to legal expertise, but the reality is it is not always easy for people to travel to seminars, especially with winter on its way. We are completely committed to delivering face-to-face support to clients at their premises or elsewhere, but the webinars give us an opportunity to add an extra value service for all clients, including those who are further afield.”
