Mustill Lecture 2017 Postponement

We are disappointed to announce the postponement of the Mustill Lecture 2017, which was scheduled to take place on 20th October.  Unfortunately due to the current pressure placed upon the TCC, appointments to the Court of Appeal and the general shortage of Judges, our planned speaker The Hon. Mr Justice Coulson cannot fit the lecture into his schedule. Mr Justice Coulson has apologised for the inconvenience caused, but he is simply in a position where the demands of the Courts must be served first.

Once alternative arrangements have been made, a re-scheduled date will be announced for the event and we look forward to the continued success of the Mustill Lecture in Leeds.


Keep checking back as our events calendar is regularly updated.
