The North West region covers Lancashire, Cheshire, Cumbria, Isle of Man, Merseyside, Greater Manchester and part of Shropshire

Next Event

The 2019 AGM of the UKELA North West Group will be held on Monday 17th September 2019 at Weightmans Manchester office at 1 Hardman St, Manchester M3 3EB (thanks to Simon Colvin for your support in hosting). The AGM will begin at 5.30pm and will last up to one hour max.

At the AGM we will cover the creation of a new NW focused regional group (the region covers a broad geographic spread with key legal centres of Manchester, Greater Manchester and Liverpool through to Preston and the Lakes incorporated) and also discuss the future activities of the UKELA NW Group. It would be great to see as many UKELA members attend as possible in order to gather interest, enthusiasm and hopefully to confirm new members to the group to take the NW Region into 2020 with a clear direction. Please email alison@ukela.org to book your place.
