Anthony Edwards, one of the main attractions, a renowned criminal law defence solicitor, delivered his unique and wide-ranging presentation updating law professionals on vital changes to legislation that directly affects their roles.

Professor Alisdair Gillespie, Head of Lancaster University Law School, examined offensive communications and the law. 

Senior District Crown Prosecutor Mark Paul explored disclosure, policy initiatives and reducing the risk of cases failing at court.

Detective Chief Inspector Carl Galvin outlined County Lines from a regional and national perspective.

This year’s quiz prize winner was Lorna Ratcliffe from West Yorkshire Police who chose Arthritis Research UK as the recipient of the £50 charitable donation.
