9:05 Landlord and tenant update: Kevin Lee, partner

Focusing on the latest commercial landlord and tenant disputes to hit the courts, we will look at issues such as costs in dilapidations claims, tenants' liability for their sub-tenants' breaches and the modern approach to mesne profits.

In a pickle – the journey continues: planning and localism: John Holmes, head of planning and Loraine Adams, solicitor

As the Localism Bill makes its way through Parliament, the proposals for neighbourhood planning, abolition of RSS, and local referendums in England will be examined. The separate provisions for Wales will also be discussed.

All mixed up: Bill Chandler, legal director
