IPW200The Institute of Professional Willwriters announces the annual National Will Writers Conference, to be held on 17 March at Drayton Manor Hotel.

This year’s event is not only a special occasion, marking the 25th anniversary of the IPW, but is also arguably one event that anyone involved in the Will writing sector should attend.

The impressive line up of speakers includes Professor Lesley King, and Caroline Bielanska, as well as presentations from amongst others Bloomsbury, of Parkers Will Precedents fame, and key speakers discussing professional indemnity insurance issues within the Will writing community.

The event is open to non-members of the IPW at a fee of £109 if booked before 29 February and £149 thereafter.

This promises to be one of the must-attend events of the year. For further details of the event, and also if you might be interested in discussing the benefits of joining the IPW, please contact the Institute of Professional Willwriters on 0345 257 2570 or via email: enquiries@ipw.org.uk

We need to move away from using technology to try and recreate the thought-process of a lawyer. The idea is not to build a lawyer’s brain, although we may well want to approximate some of its features. Rather, the potential tech offers is in designing a system that arrives at a similar, if not a more accurate or informed outcome as a lawyer might, by building on the strengths that computers have that humans do not, namely: the ability to simultaneously process large amounts of data, to calculate probabilities more accurately, and to identify patterns and relationships that exist across a large evidence base.
