The Centre for Financial Law, Regulation & Compliance (FinReg) Visiting Professor Inaugural Event: Academic and Practitioner Engagement: Practitioner Perspectives
24 Feb 2021, 16:00 to 24 Feb 2021, 17:30
Online Seminar (Zoom)
This webinar brings together four eminent practitioners to discuss how academic research influences their practice and how the relationship between practitioners and academics can be improved. In particular the panel will discuss the ways in which academic research impacts the development of laws (both through the Law Commission and outside of it), how academia influences day to day legal practice, and how academic research can affect cases in Appellant courts in particular. The panel will also discuss how the relationship between legal academics and practitioners can be improved and developed.
The discussion will also explore what reach and academic writings practitioners find particularly useful, in the different facets of their work. The audience are encouraged to contribute with views on how practitioners can help their research, both in traditional and non-traditional ways.
