Yesterday’s insights: inspiring tomorrow
The UG Laws Teaching Centres Conference (TCC) provides a forum for representatives from Recognised Teaching Centres to discuss legal education and share teaching experiences with a range of delegates including University of London academics involved in the creation of learning resources for the programme. The broad purpose of the conference is to consolidate and deepen our relationships with Teaching Centres, to provide them with support, and to identify and share good practice. UG Laws is delighted to be hosting its 6th TCC in 2023.

We will be providing carefully selected sessions, including panel discussions and activities for deepening our understanding of the delivery of the programme. There is an array of distinguished speakers and insightful presentations which will keep your interest over the two days.
