City Livery Courses

If you have not attended one of the City of London Briefings, please consider it; they are highly recommended. New Liverymen are expected to attend one. The Briefings provide an introduction to the City Corporation and its relationship with the Livery companies. They also provide a good opportunity to meet other Liverymen and Freemen over a light finger buffet. Click here to see details, and book and pay for a place (£10 per person).

There are three types of courses:

  • City Briefings – aimed particularly at new Liverymen and Freemen but partners are also welcome to attend.
  • Wardens and Court Assistants City Course – learning how the civic and financial City works – aimed at Liverymen who are approaching the Chair of a Company, new Clerks, and other Court members. The course is run each year in September.
  • Clerks’ Briefings – for clerks of London Livery Companies only. The event is divided into two parts with the first half specifically aimed at new clerks.
