Dunno if anyone might be interested in this.  I've been to a few of the SSCL
talks and they are normally interesting.  It's normally about 99% suited
lawyers and me looking like the spare part.  It's typically distinctly slanted
to lawyers, so don't expect any in jokes about kernel compilation or functional
programming here.  That said, I enjoy them.

I can't find venue details, but it's normally in some central law company
offices.  Quarter Mile or the High Street kinda areas.
