Cynhadledd Prosiect Cyfraith Gyhoeddus Cymru

Ar ôl seibiant byr oherwydd y pandemig, bydd cynhadledd PLP yng Nghymru yn dychwelyd yn 2021, gan edrych ar fynediad at gyfiawnder, effaith Brexit a chyfres o seminarau cyfraith gyhoeddus ymarferol. Bydd y digwyddiad yn cael ei gynnal dros dri diwrnod ar Zoom, a bydd y sesiynau’n cael eu rhannu rhwng y bore a’r prynhawn er mwyn bod mor hyblyg â phosib o ran ymrwymiadau. Bydd pob sesiwn yn cael ei recordio a’i rhannu â’r cynrychiolwyr ar ôl i’r gynhadledd ddod i ben.
Yn anffodus, ni fydd cyfieithu ar y pryd i’r Gymraeg ar gael ar gyfer y digwyddiad hwn.

Mae’r tocynnau’n costio £30 a TAW, ac yn costio £10 a TAW i fyfyrwyr (sylwch mai dim ond i fyfyrwyr mewn addysg amser llawn y mae’r tocynnau ar gael, a dim ond y rheini sy’n archebu gyda chyfeiriad e-bost prifysgol dilys fydd yn cael eu prosesu)

Hoffem gydnabod cymorth a phartneriaeth Prifysgol Caerdydd,  30 Plas y Parc a’r Grŵp Ymarferwyr Cymorth Cyfreithiol (LAPG) ar gyfer y digwyddiad hwn.
