SCL Astra Scotland – Site Visit, Glasgow School of Art
3.00pm

SCL Astra is delighted to invite members and non-members to a tour of the restoration project at Glasgow School of Art.

SCL Astra has been developed to provide opportunities to SCL members and guests who are up to 10 years post-qualified, have recently moved to a new field within the construction legal industry or who are young at heart. The aim of the organised site visits is to allow junior lawyers to experience the tangible results of the paperwork we grapple with on a day to day basis. PPE can be provided.

For more information on the restoration project, please visit the Glasgow School of Art’s website.

School of Arts The Mackintosh Building, Renfrew Street, Glasgow G3 6RF
