Post Conference Blog: 17th Annual Grange Conference, September 2018

Whilst our September 2018 Conference is still fresh in our memories, it’s good to know that once again we welcomed a fantastic, engaged and interactive group of delegates and fabulous range of high quality speakers.

Our delegates know the advantage of the conference being based in the heart of the stunning Yorkshire Dales: the Ripley Castle Estate provides a peaceful environment for stimulating and thought-provoking discussion whilst applying ‘The Chatham House Rule’, of course!

Yet again, this unique conference was well attended and full of healthy, challenging debate with some of this country’s leading experts. Topics this year included: probing bias in expert psychiatric evidence; questioning memory and its validity in fair trial; the work of the Fixated Threat Assessment Centre – to name just a few! The conference also offered the opportunity to have a private consultation with two of our leading medico-legal expert psychiatrists: Professor Keith Rix and Dr Danny Allen, to gain confidential support and guidance on a 1-1 basis on the aspects of their expert witness practice.

And our unique Black Tie Dinner...   ‘a wonderful evening – quite delightful!’
As ever, our Grange Conference Black Tie Dinner continues to be a popular feature. Often many delegates bring along their partners for this fabulous event – pre-dinner drinks in delightful surroundings of the drawing room, fabulous food and drink, very amusing after dinner speakers and all served within the wonderful historic Ripley Castle candlelit library!
