Your Management Board is potentially looking to a new venue for the Annual Training Event this year.
With news of this next month, for now please save the date of 1st October for the event.
Solicitors Framework Re-Procurement

With the current framework expiring at the end of March 2020 theres no time to waste in reprocuring a
new NWLC framework. Work is now beginning on this important task.

If you have any comments about how the current framework works, the lots, the numbers of appointed
firms etc we would love to hear from you.

Please send any comments or requests as soon as possible to

Its your framework – let us make it work for you.

You can book yourselves, colleagues or clients on to our FREE courses through the website at

With this latest programme we have aligned all course start times as 10am to avoid confusion and
assist all delegates in making their travel arrangements.

Please note that 10am is the actual start of the training session.

Coming up you’ve got:
GDPR Update on 3rd April, presented by Hill Dickinson at their Liverpool office.
Planning Update on 10th April presented by Weightmans at their Liverpool office and,
Employment Law Update on 1st May, presented by DAC Beachcroft at their Manchester office.
More detail can be found on the website courses page at

Don’t forget that all this training is free and is open to legal staff at member organisations as well
as to client department staff.

And finally a request….
Booked on to a training course but now find that you can’t make it?

If this happens to you…..and it might and it does, please try to let us know as soon as you can.
Recent training sessions have had a significant number of delegates not attending and this can make
things difficult for presenters and other delegates. If you can cancel your place please do so with as much notice as possible.

There is a facility to manage your bookings on the website – just click on ‘Book a Course’ and you will see
‘Manage your Bookings’. Then just highlight the booking you want to manage and you have a choice to edit
or cancel that booking.

Or call or email Beryl to let us know not to expect you. It really does help us to manage the training better
and shows respect for the trainers and other colleagues.
Many thanks.
