Paul Jagger is Court Assistant of the Worshipful Company of Information Technology and the author of a number of books.
The City of London’s Livery Companies predate the Norman Conquest but they remain vibrant and relevant in the 21st century. There are more Livery Companies and more members of Livery Companies now than at any time in recorded history. Thirty-three new Livery Companies have been formed in the past 90 years, and 5 more are in the pipeline. This lecture explores the role, relevance and impact of the Livery Companies as they are today - unique institutions who thrive in a realm which lies beyond the limits of logic: The Great and Famous City of London.
