Great Expectations is the first in a series of seminars presented by Andrew Sperling and SL5.
The cost of this event is just £40 per person.
This seminar is held in conjunction with The Association of Prison Lawyers and Garden Court North Chambers.

- Pete Weatherby QC – Garden Court North Chambers
- Matthew Stanbury – Garden Court North Chambers
- Jackie Craissati (Consultant Clinical & Forensic Psychologist, Psychological Approaches CIC) & Paula Harriott (Head of Involvement, Revolving Doors)
