PIBA Annual Conference 2024


We are very happy to announce that the next PIBA Annual Conference will take place Keble College, Oxford on 22-24 March 2024.

Bookings are now open! Prices and the booking rules for the early bird group bookings are on the booking form (linked below).

As always, the 2024 Annual Conference will assist you with your personal CPD plan, 'reflection' and achievements for the purposes of your own personal CPD plans, but so much more than that it will be a chance for us all to catch up in person.  We will also be running the mini mentoring scheme as last year on the Saturday night with no lasting commitment other than a 15 minute conversation over drinks, if you want to opt out please do say so when booking.

The programme is packed with topics which will be delivered in a variety of sessions, including those specifically aimed at senior / junior levels of call.

The programme is now available to download here. Topics include:

  • Secondary Victims

  • The link between brain injury and dementia

  • Latest development in the neuropsychiatry of mild TBI

  • Inquiries for seniors

  • Inquests from all perspectives

  • An introduction to contribution and indemnity proceedings

  • Intermediaries and their use in Court and Litigation

  • Costs

  • The overlap between psychiatry and pain

  • Interactive session on tricky issues in big care claims

  • Interactive session on care for juniors

  • Cross examination 101

  • Junior Town Hall

  • A View from the Bench

  • Duty of Care

  • Remote working and wellbeing – sharing tips to find a balance

  • Ethnic Diversity and Inclusion at the PI Bar

Please note that there will be NO PARKING at Keble College.  


Booking and Prices

We are allowing group bookings and individual bookings from the very start. 

Some ticket prices have finally (the first increase in about 5 years) had to increase given the level of inflation - but the Annual Conference still excellent value for what's on offer.

Basic prices are as follows:


 Fri to Sun

Sat to Sun

Under 3 yrs



3 - 9 yrs



10+ years






That price includes an electronic bundle which will be sent to you before the event. If you require a paper bundle, there is an additional charge of £20 per person.

Discounted group bookings must use the booking form which you can find here. The rules for those bookings are set out on the form.

If you're interested in attending the conference but are struggling to make the whole event due to childcare or other caring commitments, please do get in touch as there are a limited number of day rate tickets available. We want to ensure that the event is as accessible as possible so please email Jo Davies. If a family room or child-friendly activities would assist, please also get in touch as this is something we are considering.

Please also note that call is by year at the date of booking, not by month within the year (in the same way that we all advertise ourselves as called in a particular year, not a particular month!). We work on a membership year, so 'Under 3 Years' call is call in or after 2021 etc. 

If you would like a place on the coach (from London on the Friday afternoon, returning on the Sunday), please either indicate that on the group booking form (and pay for it with your booking) or for individual bookings, please email Jo Davies, our PIBA Administrator by clicking here. It will cost £30 return per person.

If you have any accessibility requirements please either indicate that on the group booking form or for individual bookings, please email Jo Davies, our PIBA Administrator by clicking here.
