This lecture, the fourth in the ELS Northern Province Lecture series 2019, is hosted by Wrigleys Solicitors LLP.
The Rt Worshipful Charles George QC, Auditor of the Chancery Court of York, will speak on "Do we still need the Faculty System?"
The Lecture will review the history and present scope of the faculty jurisdiction; past reviews of it from the Faculty Jurisdiction Commission (1984) to the Report on Simplification of the Faculty Process (2012); and whether the present way the system operates continues to be justified.
This lecture is open to members and non-members. Booking through the website closes 48 hours before the event (or when the event is full) but please contact the Administrator for late availability requests.
Refreshments are served from 5.00pm and the lecture will begin at 5:30pm.
