How It Works




How do I hear / see the seminar?

You will hear an excellent speaker live as it is presented, through your telephone (use of a hands–free phone recommended) and see PowerPoint slides change simultaneously on your computer via the Internet.

How do I join the seminar?

It is very simple. Once you have registered we will e-mail you simple step-by-step joining instructions including your event course number.  This will include the website link for you to view the visual part of the presentation and a telephone number (charged at local rates) for you to dial into together with the conference ID that will be requested once an operator takes your call.

Approximately 10 minutes before the start time, you will connect to a website link, where you will insert your name, firm’s name and email address.  This will connect you to the Internet to view the slides and other graphics as the web seminar progresses. You will always see the opening slide, which will contain the title and presenter as you connect up.

To connect for sound, a few minutes before the start time, you merely need to telephone the number you have been provided with as part of your joining instructions.  You will only pay at the local rates.

That’s it!

What equipment do I need?

The good news is that all you need is a telephone (ideally with a hands-free facility) and an Internet connected computer near each other.

When your booking is confirmed you will be provided with details of a system test in the form of a download for you to install the necessary software on to your computer.  It you continue to use the same computer to view our seminars this download need only be done once.  This download is free of charge and is authenticated by Microsoft and therefore will not interfere with your security system in any way.

We have had firms who have never done a Lips Legal web seminar before, book 10 minutes before the event and then participate.

Do I need any technical knowledge?

If you know how to use a telephone and connect to the Internet you know as much as you need.

Can I ask questions?

Yes – in two ways. At the end of the presentation you will also have the chance to join a live verbal question and answer session, which everyone can hear. Think of this part like a radio phone in. You will be told exactly what to do at the time.

Alternatively, as the live seminar is in progress you will be given the facility to type a question or comment onto your computer screen and send it privately to the presenter.

They will either answer it then, at the end of the session or contact you privately after the presentation.

What if I miss a seminar, can’t participate live on the date, want to see it again or show it to other colleagues?

Again, this is no problem.

If you have booked a seminar and are unable to attend we will send you the webcast recording as either a download link or on CD as an alternative for the same fee.

If you would like to view a seminar that has already been broadcast, we have a large collection of previous broadcasts available for purchase and details are available by following the Web Seminar Archive link. These are available at the same price as the live event. Simply e mail or call to choose your topic. 

Note Lips Legal Members will pay much less for this facility. Note this facility alone may justify your annual Lips Legal subscription fee.

Can we connect up more than once for the same event or from different offices?

Yes, no problem and many firms do this. We find that for reasons of convenience, many firms with multiple offices often like to connect up from each of them to participate. This is no problem at all.

Your web seminar fee however covers each single connection, so if you connect up more than once or from different locations there will be an additional fee.

Note, that Lips Legal members get a 50% reduction to be able to do this.
