Background on Speaker – Dr Giles Proctor, CEO, The College of Legal Practice

Dr Giles Proctor qualified as a solicitor with Addleshaw Goddard in Manchester and practiced in corporate and commercial law before entering teaching and completing his PhD.

Giles has designed and delivered commercial diploma courses and corporate training for ‘magic circle’ law firms, whilst at Nottingham Law School and the University of Law. He managed the successful opening of a new law school for Kaplan, delivering postgraduate legal education, in partnership with Nottingham Law School, to over 16 City firms.
