Other speakers – posted 10 February 2017
We are in the process of confirming the speakers for the different streams at the conference. We have had a great response to the request from some amazing people who will be able to share about their own journeys and provide unique insights into what it means to be a Christian and a lawyer. We will post more details on the speakers soon once they are all confirmed.
