Attendees also had an opportunity to discuss the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on conveyancing in Northern Ireland and the response of the profession in keeping the market moving.

A number of keynote speakers provided presentations including:

·        Alan Reid, Chair, Law Society Conveyancing and Property Committee on the work of Law Society Conveyancing and Property Committee including the Home Charter Review and the impact of coronavirus.
