The Independent Practitioners Committee supports lawyers in sole practice or in small to medium sized firms as well as barristers.
Speakers are invited to address groups of practitioners, with the meetings preceded by drinks and nibbles encouraging social interaction and collegiality.
Past speakers have included Judges and senior members of the profession covering a wide range of topics. Business advisors and technology experts also addressed IPG meetings covering such topics as business strategy and administration including emerging technology. Social events are popular.
Discussions and debates are often robust and regularly proceed on an "off the record" basis. Whilst the functions are aimed principally at practitioners from smaller practices, all lawyer members of the society are welcome to attend. Details are published in the weekly e-brief.
