A literary estate: A case study discussion. 13 October 2022
Charles Russell Speechlys
5 Fleet Place
Following the popularity of the last case study event, our moderator Thomas Dumont KC returns to present an estate case study prepared by Leigh Sagar.
The event will be set up with participants in small groups to enthusiastically discuss and debate the interesting issues raised in the case of a successful author who should not have relied on the autopilot feature of her new car.
Due to the nature of this as an interactive, small group event, this is an in-person event only.
