The conference will be chaired by Her Honour Judge Karen Fergus and happily coincides with the completion of the Voice of the Child Project which will be launched by Her Honour Judge Sarah Berkeley who, together with the other members of that project, have completed what we hope will have a pivotal bearing and input on how this important issue is dealt with by our Courts.

The event will cost €100 for paid members whilst those who are not paid members can pay a rate of €220 to include the annual membership subscription. Members who are under 5 years qualified can avail of the reduced rate of €50, with non-members who are under 5 years qualified can avail of a rate of €110, which also includes the annual membership subscription. There are 5.5 CPD points available to include 1 point in the area of Practice Management.
