We are pleased to invite you to attend the Annual Bird & Bird Corporate Counsel CPD Day on 20 March 2017.

It is that time of year when compliance with mandatory CPD requirements comes to the forefront of our minds. The aim of this annual event is to help you fulfil your CPD requirements and receive information which is relevant to your practice. There is of course no charge for attendance.

The programme offers a choice of sessions from either stream designed to assist corporate counsel to be prepared for the issues they face in a changing world. We look forward to seeing you on Monday, 20 March.
