Join us at our events and conferences

Harper Macleod's training is coordinated through HM Academy. We regularly organise topical seminars and events, providing delegates with updates on developments and forthcoming legislation updates in their industry and demonstrating the potential impact on their organisations.

Our seminars and workshops ensure delegates have an opportunity to discuss workplace scenarios, enhance knowledge and expertise and ultimately learn how to deal with the challenges and opportunities that arise within their own organisations.

The format and content of our seminars are heavily influenced by delegate feedback and include informative talks from our legal teams combined with interactive workshops.
