Legal Event - A Success!

Legal Event - A Success!


Thank you to those that attending the Legal Services Event on Thursday 7th November.


We’re pleased to say our first category specific event for Professional Services was a success and took place at the spacious venue of Leeds College of Music. Seventeen member institutions were represented at the event, providing the perfect opportunity to network, share thoughts and best practices with fellow procurement and legal professionals. The aim of the Legal Event was to allow end users to engage directly with the suppliers and to enable them to understand the benefits of NEUPC Legal Services Framework to their institution.




This was also backed by a case study delivered by Phil Booth, Senior Legal Advisor at Northumbria University, discussing the scope and benefits of using the framework. The programme consisted of back to back supplier presentations with plentiful time to visit the mini exhibition.


"The whole of the event was very interesting and well thought out. Great to see a number of Suppliers providing up to date information and knowledge on how to better our skills as in-house Solicitors in HE. Would definitely go again to any future Legal Services events."

Across the 7 workshops sessions delivered, a high percentage of delegates believed their knowledge of the subject areas had increased. Our programme was specifically designed for the Legal Teams within institutions, to enhance their understanding of topics including OJEU Procurement, Complex procurement, Termination of Senior Staff and more.


Good mix of subjects – Head of Procurement

Good broad spread of talks all very relevant to the HE - Senior Legal Adviser



We would also like to thank the suppliers for their continued support of NEUPC allowing to run events free of charge for members.
