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.

New right to paid leave for bereaved parents: A welcome move

Kimberley Manning DAS

This year, like many in recent years, has seen some key changes within the employment law field, with the government, trade unions and lobbyists remaining endlessly engaged in seeking to impose their interpretation of fair balance between employers and their respective workforces. Although consensus on that equilibrium can never really be achieved, sometimes there are pieces of legislative movement which are difficult to argue with regardless of your perspective: This is one of those. Published on 13 October 2017, the Parental Bereavement (Pay and Leave) Bill would provide for the first time a legal right to parents who are employed and have suffered the death of a child, a minimum of two weeks’ leave in which to grieve.
