Event description
The Leading Litigators Virtual Autumn Reception takes place on the 30 September 2020 online.

About this event

The CLF is hosting the Leading Litigators Virtual Autumn Reception on Remo, supported by Augusta.

You’re invited to join a who's who of the litigation sector, including Commercial Court Judges, the GC100, commercial litigators and COMBAR to celebrate the 2020 CLF Directory of Service Providers, the work of the National Pro Bono Centre and the important 125th anniversary of the Commercial Court of England and Wales.

We are delighted to confirm Lord Sumption will attend the event to make the keynote address, following a short welcome from Mrs Justice Cockerill on behalf of the Commercial Court. Lord Sumption will be sharing his thoughts on "the future of justice - out of lockdown but facing the economic consequences of the pandemic" and there will be a short Q&A followed by networking.
