9 October 2013

More than 800 delegates attended PSG’s CPD Marathon of 26 seminars and 9 webinars throughout September.

The seminars each provided 3 SRA accredited CPD points and took place at venues across England and Wales. For those who couldn’t attend these were complemented by 9 one hour webinars.

Stephen Murray, Business Development Director at PSG said: “This is the first time PSG has run such a concentrated programme of CPD events nationally and we’ve been blown away by the attendance levels. We have also been equally impressed by our partner presenters CLS, Groundsure, Landmark and Legal Eye, who joined us on this venture.  The feedback from delegates has been tremendous”.

Conveyancing hot topics

The CPD seminars covered current legal “hot topics” and included presentations on energy infrastructure, fracking and wind farms, regulatory compliance, title investigation and insuring against risk.

With more offices than any other provider across England & Wales, PSG prides itself on supporting the Conveyancing profession at a local level.

Feedback from the delegates

Karen McCormick, Conveyancing Lawyer, at Plymouth based Gard and Co Solicitors commented “I always find PSG’s CPD events interesting, well prepared and informative. They are of great value to Lawyers and support staff and help us to help our clients more effectively. I look forward to the next one”.

Conveyancing Executive, Claire Marsh, from Parker Rhodes Hickmotts Solicitors in Sheffield added “The Free CPD events organised by PSG are a valuable source of information. The events are an added benefit to our long standing relationship with PSG, which we hope will continue for many years to come.”

What our Partners thought:

Jaunita Gobby, Director at Compliance Consultants Legal Eye, explained “We partnered with PSG this year in their CPD Seminars beginning in the first half of 2013 and then again in September as part of 26 national seminars. We were delighted to be asked to be part of this national CPD campaign and it was a huge success. The events were very well organised and supported by the local firms. It is a great opportunity for Legal Eye to meet new firms and discuss their compliance concerns and requirements and to share the events with industry leaders covering a wide variety of topics.

Groundsure presented a varied presentation which featured the impact of fracking and other energy infrastructure on the conveyancing process and added “GroundSure was delighted to support PSG with a series of CPD Seminars throughout September, which received overwhelmingly positive feedback. We take great pride in ensuring that solicitors gain the very latest updates in an understandable, clear and succinct manner. The sessions were very well organised and attended and held in some great venues and we look forward to supporting PSG with further events in the future”.

PSG would like to thank their partners and all the delegates who supported the events and are already busy planning for a repeat performance in 2014.

Woebots and robots

Nadia chatbot

The chances are that you may not be entirely sure what a bot or a chatbot is. So, the news that, “starting today, DoNotPay is opening up so that anyone can create legal bots for free (with no technical knowledge)” may be a bit opaque. But bots have their devotees. The picture is of Nadia, an Australian bot being developed to give information on disability benefits with the voice of Cate Blanchett. The editor of Chatbots Magazine (OK, no neutral source) is pretty clear about their future. He writes articles with titles like ‘How bots will completely kill websites and mobile apps’. Joshua Browder, the creator of the DoNotPay parking ticket challenger, is behind what he hopes will be this major expansion of legal bots.
