Just a note to say how much we enjoyed the conference. It was lovely to meet you and Peter and the group - some new and some old friends. The standard of the papers and contributions was great and the venue perfect. Of course, the organisation was excellent.–Mark Dempsey, 7 Wentworth Selborne Chambers

It was great having the opportunity to meet a group of high level legal professionals without the ceremony which is often surrounded by these events.–Bill Smith

The conference was excellent, small enough to get to know everyone (and make great friends) and the papers were very good, all relevant topics and some very entertaining speakers.–Alison Osmand

I went without expectations and was overwhelmed by the camaraderie of the delegates, the calibre of the papers and the overall excellence of organisation.–Beverley Cantle, Cantle Carmichael Lawyers

A charming mix of education and fun.–Mitch McKenzie

Thank you very much for all your hard work which made the conference really enjoyable. Verity and I had a wonderful time and greatly appreciated the conference atmosphere that you created. The format is a sensational blend of casual, informative and friendly. the venues were a pleasure. We very much enjoyed our first experience of Learned Friends and will be back. –Bruce Hodgkinson SC
