In December 2016, the North East Branch held its annual Keating Construction Law Update, hosted by Leeds Beckett University. Adrian Williamson QC of Keating Chambers was the guest speaker at a very well attended event and gave an interesting and informative talk on some of the legal highlights of the year, following which the audience participated in a question and answer session. After the talk the NE Branch hosted a networking event with food and drink for attendees.
At the start of the evening a prize winning student from Leeds Beckett University, Fiona Gorton, was introduced to Mr Williamson by one of her lecturers and NE Branch Committee member, Martin Green (on the right of the picture). In what has become something of a tradition, the prize Fiona received was a copy of Keating on Construction Contracts, generously provided by Keating Chambers.
