ConsortEM newsletter

Autumn 2016

Welcome to the autumn edition of the ConsortEM newsletter for EM LawShare members. We are putting the finishing touches to arrangements for the conference on 14 October 2016 and can now reveal that the key speaker will be Tom Cheeswright, an ‘applied futurist’.

In this edition we have a number of articles which relate to the issue of how to generate funds and work more effectively in these times of austerity. We also take a look at assets of community value and its implications and Brexit, which Spotlight contributor Ruth Dennis predicts will ‘keep lawyers across all sectors busy for a considerable time.’
