Looking forward to the 2017 Scottish Paralegal Association conference; and a reminder about the Paralegal of the Year award

by Alison Smith

A very happy new year from the Scottish Paralegal Association. Now that the festivities are over, our attention turns to our annual conference. The conference will be held on Thursday 20 April 2017 in the Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow. Last year’s conference was a great success and this year is looking even better. We have a great line-up of speakers, with more to be announced, covering a variety of domains including Conveyancing, Executry, Criminal, Licensing, Civil and Debt Recovery. Tickets go on sale very soon, so please watch out for an email, and of course you can find further information on our website www.scottish-paralegal.org.uk. Don’t forget this is also a verifiable CPD event.

The winner of our Paralegal of the Year award will be announced at our conference. Please remember to nominate a paralegal you think is worthy of the award, or nominate yourself. We are all aware of the outstanding job paralegals do, so make sure you get your nominations in. Applications will be accepted until Tuesday 31 January 2017. Check the website for further details.

Please keep in touch with us, using Twitter or Facebook: follow us at @ScotsParalegals. This is a great way to keep up to date with news and details of upcoming CPD events, SPA events and networking events. It is an ideal way to contact other paralegals and a great forum for discussion between your peers.
