Support for BDLS members
As you will be aware, we have taken the decision to cancel or postpone all of our face to face events as the safety and wellbeing of our members, suppliers and employees remains our top priority. Individuals who had signed up to affected events will be contacted directly with further details in due course.
In the meantime, we are keen to help our members through these difficult times. As this situation continues, we are sure that many of you will have questions or may benefit from conversations with others in our legal community. If you are unsure who to speak to or where to find the answers you need, we will do all we can to assist. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
