The Agricultural Law Association: The Next Generation (ALA:TNG) is giving young professionals working in the agriculture sector the chance to find out more about arbitration at its next event.
ALA:TNG was established countrywide to encourage young professionals from 0 to 15 years post-qualification working in the sector to meet and discuss agricultural business topics and issues.
ALA:TNG has also announced its new-look committee.
Rosanne Tweddle, of Latimer Hinks Solicitors in Darlington, is the new chair of ALA:TNG, working with committee members Harry Chrisp, an associate at Dickinson Dees, Robert Pardoe, a rural surveyor at Sale and Partners, and Lucinda Clifford, a rural surveyor at GSC Chartered Surveyors.
Elizabeth Allen, Associate at Dickinson Dees, will be discussing the issue of arbitration at ALA:TNGs next event in Newcastle on Thursday, December 2, at 3.30pm.
Existing and new members of ALA:TNG are invited to attend the event, which will be held at Dickinson Dees, 112 Quayside, Newcastle Upon Tyne NE1 3DX.
The seminar is designed to give an overview of the arbitration process including preparing statements of case, presentation skills when in front of the arbitrator and Calderbank Letters. There will be an opportunity for questions and answers.
Rosanne Tweddle, chair of ALA:TNG said: "The Agricultural Law Associations The Next Generation initiative is all about bringing young professionals together outside of the office environment. Often, this involves events where an issue or topic can be discussed in detail and we are very lucky to have Elizabeth Allen leading this seminar, which I am sure will be of interest to young professionals from across the North East.
