CLIG is excited to welcome Caroline Mack, Knowledge & Information Manager at the Legal Directorate of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), to talk us through what the FCO does, the structure of the Legal Directorate and her role, and how the FCO is dealing with current challenges such as Brexit.

Caroline will also touch on some of the public collections that are available such as the UK Treaties database and enquiry service and will provide a broad overview of what treaties are and why we have them.

Following the talk there will be an opportunity to network over a glass of wine and nibbles.
