Major players announced for Millar & Bryce Conveyancing Conference

Professor George Gretton

Professor George Gretton and The Keeper of the Registers of Scotland, Jennifer Henderson, are to headline Millar & Bryce’s Modern Conveyancing Conference in Edinburgh this September.

Both will join leading industry experts to discuss some of the current practical and legal challenges affecting the conveyancing market-place, whilst sharing their extensive policy and practical experience.

Having recently retired from 35 years teaching at the University of Edinburgh, the conference is one of a few events Professor George Gretton has committed to speaking at this year. A key figurehead, he will tell of his passion for the law whilst delivering insight into the Scottish legal and property market. Appointed as Keeper in April this year, Jennifer Henderson will bring the audience up to speed on the exciting initiatives underway at RoS to support completion of Scotland’s map-based Land Register.

Richard Hepburn, managing director of Millar & Bryce, said: “We are delighted to announce the speakers for this year’s conference, all major influencers on the policy and practice of conveyancing in Scotland.
