Professional Practice Webinar: The Language of Risk (BST 1300-1415)

Recent events have highlighted the limitations of using terms such as low, medium or high risk when referring to Part 2A and planning contexts.

This webinar will clarify how to evaluate risks under specific legal contexts and identify the strengths and weaknesses of the "risk" matrix that is reproduced in several commonly cited guidance documents.

LQM’s Paul Nathanail will deliver this Professional Practice Webinar as part of LQM's continued commitment to raising standards among practitioners and regulators on topics of timely relevance.
