Police Law Conference

22 June 2023

The go-to police chambers covering all aspects of police law at every level” Legal 500

As part of our commitment to police law, and our clients, we offer an unparalleled range of training – the highlight of which is the 5 Essex Chambers Annual Police Law Conference, held each year at the Waldorf Hotel in London.

Attended by over 100 solicitors specialising in police law, 5 Essex Chambers expert barristers guide delegates through a narrative scenario presenting legal problems along the way. Group discussions and model answers equip delegates with the knowledge to respond to the real world challenges they face on a daily basis.

Topics covered at the last conference included:

  • Police misconduct and civil claims
  • Search Warrants
  • Whistle-blowing
  • Firearms licensing
  • Information sharing
  • Negligence and convention liability for police failures
  • Mental health and policing
  • Employment law and police misconduct

What our delegates said about the day:

“Clearly the pre-eminent chambers providing the best training for police law.”

“…an absolutely outstanding day which squeezes so much learning (managing to make it fun!) and presents a really good opportunity to meet colleagues in a similar line of work and to build on existing relationships.”

“…it really demonstrates that not only do you have barristers and clerks who are brilliant at what they do, but they’re also so clearly invested in their police clients…”

“The venue, catering, speakers and in fact the whole organization of the event was marvelous. I can see why it is over-subscribed.”

“I very much enjoyed the conference, this was the first interactive one I have attended and I found it really interesting and enjoyable. I look forward to attending more in the future.”

“The fact that you are now turning people away speaks volumes.”

“Extremely useful and perfectly pitched.”

“…it’s almost like training by stealth – I come away having learned so much but having enjoyed myself doing it!”

The next Police Law Conference will take place on 27 June 2024 at the Waldorf Hotel in London.
