There is a very high demand for places which are offered on a first come first served basis. We may have to limit the number of places per organisation.
This event is provided by the Commission in Scotland primarily for solicitors, advocates, advisors and trades union representatives who provide representation or advice on discrimination law. We will prioritise people who fall into those categories. If space allows, we will make places available to those outwith this group, but may ask you to join a waiting list before confirming your attendance.
To book a place: email email@example.com including your name, organisation and any requirements you may have including communication support, access or dietary requirements.
Please be aware – if you book any less than 14 days before the event every effort will be made but it may not be possible to meet your access requirements.
To discuss or for assistance with booking please contact David Reilly by telephone on 0141 228 5967 or by mini com on 0141 228 5989
