This year’s Legal Aid Costs Conference was a huge success, with 305 attendees. We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who joined us for our annual conference, as well as all of our presenters and team that helped to create the presentations.

Our Director, Rebecca Bidwell is passionate about providing fee earners with legal aid costs training and the tools to ensure they can continue to provide essential legal aid services to some of the most vulnerable people in society.

‘Our costs conferences are our opportunity to help not just our clients but the legal aid community as a whole. It’s inspiring to listen to our team members using their specialist skills and knowledge to provide their favourite advice and tips. They truly care about helping lawyers get paid correctly and quickly so they can continue to do the amazing work they do. We are extremely fortunate to work with such an inspiring team of people’ – Rebecca Bidwell
