  • Mind the Gender Pay Gap – The BBC, equal pay and the risks of gender pay gap reporting
  • General Data Protection Regulation – How to get started on ensuring compliance
  • City Partnerships – Investing in public assets to generate income and growth

We also update you with news of new EMLawShare members, the upcoming events in our CPD training programme and we share plans for the new framework contract.
