We are pleased to announce the enormously popular Skeleton Series will return for its 16th year, over five consecutive weeks in March 2023.

Like last year, this year’s series will take place both virtually and in person, with each session covering a range of clinical negligence topics with talks from both medical and legal experts. We have a stunning array of medical experts and this year on week 4 as we are tackling issues of equality as well as clinical negligence, we are assisted by Ms Elaine Banton, and Ms Christina Lyons senior members of our Employment and Equality team.

For those attending in person, we will try to offer some practical demonstrations where appropriate in the breakout area of the seminar suite. We will invite appropriate charities or interest groups to attend in person and have stands in the breakout area of the seminar suite.

£15 per person per ticket (excluding VAT)

We will be offering all bookings on a Buy One Get One Free basis and further group discounts for larger numbers

All profits from the Skellies will go to the Child Brain Injury Trust. T-shirts are also available at a cost of £10

Webinar start time: 5.45 PM-7.30 PM

In-person start time: 5.45PM-8PM

Registration for in-person events will begin at 5:15pm with a 5:45pm start. Drinks, nibbles, and networking will be provided. It is a great opportunity to speak informally with the experts, to renew old friendships, make new friends and discuss the odd legal conundrum with our members.

Each webinar will begin at 5:45pm.

To reserve your place, please complete the booking form and email it to us at RSVP@7BR.co.uk. We will then reserve your places and send an invoice by return.
