The next Legal Wales Conference will take place on Friday 8th October 2021. It will be a "hybrid" event hosted from the historic Law Library at the Law Courts in Cathays Park, Cardiff pictured above. For the latest information, including the announced keynote speakers see the News page of the website and on Twitter @legalwales
The Conference provides a platform for significant contributions to the continuing dialogue on constitutional and legal developments in Wales. The Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales attends and gives a keynote address and the timing and Conference coincides with the annual Legal Service which marks the opening of the Legal Year in Wales and which alternates between Cardiff and Bangor. The Conference increasingly provides a focus for other legal events and meetings to take place around the same time.
The first Legal Wales Conference was held at Cardiff University in October 2003 folowing a proposal by Huw Williams of the firm of Geldards LLP for an event bringing together Legal Wales and the Welsh legal associations..
