LifeLines Virtual Spring Conference 2024

LifeLines Zoom Event Saturday 20th April 2024: with guest speaker capital defence lawyer Andrea Lyon

LifeLines conferences are always inspiring, thought-provoking and inclusive occasions, with outstanding guest speakers and opportunities to talk with fellow attendees.  The next is this spring’s Zoom-only LifeLines event, on Saturday 20th April 2024.  Do join us online if you possibly can – we’d be delighted to see you on the day!

We’re honoured to have as guest speaker Chicago-based Andrea Lyon, a renowned lawyer, author, speaker, professor and former law school dean, and the first woman to serve as lead attorney in a death penalty case.  She’ll be telling us about her groundbreaking work, and will be happy to answer questions from the audience.

The event will begin at 2pm with informal optional breakout groups for attendees to meet one another for 30 minutes, then an official start and welcome at 2.30pm, followed by the talk and Q&A.  The event will end at 4pm.
