Wardens & Court Assistants Course, organised by Livery Committee

September 20, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Wardens and Court Assistants City Course

Learn how the civic and financial City works

Wednesday 20 September 2017

This all day course is intended for senior or upper wardens due to take the chair over the coming 12 months. Their spouses, partners and consorts are also very welcome to attend.

Other Wardens and Court Assistants may also register (with spouses if they wish), but the preferred time for them to do so is during the year immediately prior to their installation.

Experience has shown that previous attendance at a City Briefing (within the past five years) is very helpful before coming on this course. New Clerks are also welcome.


To provide Liverymen approaching the chair a sound basic understanding of:

How the City Corporation operates
The roles of Lord Mayor, Court of Aldermen and Court of Common Council
The interdependence and interrelationships between the Mayoralty, the Court of Aldermen and Common Council
The relationship and significance of the Livery with the City Corporation
And a brief introduction to the business workings of City and its financial services industry, and on being a Master. There is an additional session for Masters’ Consorts.

71 Basinghall Street
London EC2V 7HH – see map

There is a charge of £75 for the course, which is refundable, providing 10 days notice is given. If you wish to cancel your place please contact the Course Administrator at livery.courses@cityoflondon.gov.uk
