Speed networking event 25th January, Edinburgh

We are delighted to announce that the  Scottish Law Librarian Group  and SWOP  are holding a joint Speed Networking event  on Thursday 25th January in the SSC Library.

Registration is from 4.00pm and the event starts at 4.30.

We hope that you can join us.

To reserve your place please  contact  Christine MacLeod  before the 17th January with the following details.




Membership of SWOP: Yes/No

Member of SLLG: Yes/No

The format is : 4/5 tables, 5/6 topics for discussion, 4-8 people at each table, 6-8 minutes of discussion for each subject (depending on numbers). Attendees are split between “stayers” and “movers”. At the end of each discussion the “movers” move to the next table. We then have  a good mix of people and opinions at each table. There is a scribe at each table and the output of the discussions will be compiled and circulated shortly after the event.

This formal part will last about 45 minutes, and is followed by an hour of informal chat, nibbles and refreshments.




Save the date!!!

This year’s SWOP AGM will be a half day event at the Advocates Library on 24th November, 1-5pm.

We hope to have 2 or 3 speakers and time for networking – with coffee and cake! – as well as the AGM.

More details will follow but please mark your calendars in the meantime.
