Relevant, interesting and challenging in equal measure, the conference combines high quality, topical content with a welcoming, friendly and highly sociable atmosphere.

Few things in life are certain. The only pleasurable one is the Oxford Joint Planning Law Conference. Every September I always know that I will come away from the weekend having experienced (1) really top quality presentations by leaders in the planning field and which have been subjected to peer review in a way that really doesn't happen elsewhere (2) the opportunity to socialise with the majority of those in the planning and planning law professions at all levels in a completely non-hierarchical way and a world away from the commercial conference circuit and (3) the unique atmosphere of New College which I just wish I could bottle and sell.

The Oxford Planning Conference is an excellent opportunity to keep up, both with the new developments and thinking in a rapidly changing world and also with old friends and colleagues. It is a winning combination of education and sociability which I always make it a point to try not to miss.
Barrister, No 5 Chambers
One of the best planning law conferences in the annual calendar - you can always expect speakers who are both erudite and entertaining, professional organisation and an unparalleled opportunity to network in the bar and disco!

The Oxford conference has proved its worth over many years. It still provides a vital forum for debate and a crucial meeting place for all those concerned with planning law.
Barrister, 4-5 Gray's Inn Square
The Oxford conference is an essential insight for the junior planning barrister into how planning works, the opportunities, the pitfalls and the personalities. I have twice attended on the generous scholarship for those of recent call and recommend it very highly from both a professional and personal point of view.
