Education & Training

The members of the Education & Training Committee specialise in all aspects of property litigation, including; commercial, residential and agricultural property law. They are lawyers who have come from a variety of firms, but who all have the skill, experience and enthusiasm to make a contribution to the Committee’s activities.

The Committee is currently chaired by Ben Barrison.

The principal responsibility of the Education Committee is the design, planning and delivery, assisted by the Association’s event organiser, of the Association’s two major annual events:

  • The Annual Conference with Dinner and overnight accommodation, usually held in Oxford in the Spring
  • The Autumn Training Day held in London

Additionally the Committee monitors, coordinates and advises if necessary on training activities in the regions and barristers’ chambers events.

The Committee welcomes comment and input from all members. It engages with the PLA membership formally through occasional surveys, but appreciates informal feedback from members about its events. Feel free to send us your ideas via the Education Committee Mailbag.

Committee members would be delighted to talk to any PLA member interested in the work of the Committee.
