Motor Law's 23rd annual conference

Having a clear-up in my study, I came across some old conference notes which enabled me to work out that this year's Motor Law conference will be the 23rd, which seems like an awful lot. And we have an excellent programme. The line-up currently looks like this:
  • Axel Bierer of the European Commission on the block exemption
  • Brian Spratt of ADF and the Right to Choose Campaign on aftermarket aspects of the block exemption
  • Gene Brockland, of Herzog Crebs (St Louis, MO), Motor Law's US correspondent, on dealer protection the American way (courtesy of some clever telecommunications link-up)
  • Chris Mason, managing director of Motor Codes Limited, on, well, motor codes
  • Iain MacDonald, barrister, of Gough Square Chambers, a very popular speaker when last he came to the conference, on the OFT's new guidance on intermediaries and credit brokers - which is creating a lot of worry in the motor trade
  • David Hertzell, Law Commissioner, on the proposed Common European Sales Law
  • Rhiannon Joseph, a colleague from CJ Jones Solicitors LLP, on employment law implications of social networking
  • Adrian Watts, solicitor, on developments in consumer law
I have a promise from an old friend, a TV pundit on motor trade matters, that he'll come along to talk after lunch if his filming schedule allows - more, I hope, later. And a few other things to shoe-horn into the schedule.

We reserve the right to change things if necessary, of course.
