Eversheds training and events

Eversheds provide thought-leading briefings and conferences, as well as core courses, to help practitioners develop their understanding of law and regulation in the workplace. We work with independent experts and government agencies to help organisations understand new legal requirements prior to implementation dates. We also aim to help delegates with their own personal professional development and to encourage better practice.

In addition, we provide a wide selection of free breakfast briefings, events and webinars.
