Feeling a bit shattered this evening having spent much of the day travelling down to (and then back from) the ProConference event at Kensington Town Hall today where I was due to deliver a talk on tenancy deposits. Travelling down to London from Norwich means an early start, and my dear husband ensured that it was even earlier than expected by setting the alarm to go off at 4.30 am instead of 5.15 as requested!
It was a good event, and I was quite honoured to be sharing a platform with Jan Luba QC, who is a far better speaker, and far more knowledgeable, than I will ever be. As would be expected, his sessions on possession proceedings, and landlords and their agents, were excellent.
It was also delightful to meet J, one part of the Nearly Legal team, who only last night did a comment on my Ancient Law post. As regular readers of this blog will know, I am a huge admirer of the Nearly Legal Blog (discussed on this post here) which is now a really authoritative source of housing case law. And yes, I will be reinstating my blogroll with NL in place of honour, in due course!
Professional Conferences are really good value . I think the course cost around £100, which for a days course with speakers of the quality of Jan Luba and Siobhan McGrath (who unfortunately I was not able to stay to hear), and about 6 hours CPD, is a bit of a bargain.
But if you are feeling a bit sick at having missed it, I expect there will be another one next year!
