The London Legal Salon was launched in 2011. Every month, in a relaxed location in central London, the Salon meets to discuss the big questions facing the law today.
Every meeting is introduced by a short talk from a lawyer or commentator in the area under examination. The discussion is then opened up to those attending to make contributions or ask questions. All meetings last around ninety minutes and operate under Chatham House rules.
For more information see the London Legal Salon blog.

"The Battle of Ideas was a great success; it enabled large numbers of people to hear and interact with well-known speakers who have thought about and contributed significantly to the discussions of many important issues."
