European circuit of the Bar annual conference 2017
Friday, 22nd September 2017
Thursday 28th – Friday 29th September 2017
In 2017, when nothing is certain and international relationships are in a state of flux, the European Circuit is collaborating with the Brussels Bars to explore important issues that are likely to shape cross-border litigation in the months and years to come. We are hoping that our longstanding professional friends and contacts will join us and that new voices will join the debate as the international legal ground shifts beneath our feet. The conference offers the opportunity to observe court proceedings in the Palais de Justice and then meet those working at the “coalface” over a working lunch; listen to and debate with highly experienced and eminent judges and practitioners about issues at the pinch-points of change; and enjoy fine wines and cuisine in the company of lawyers interested in cross-border issues within Europe and beyond. The conference objectives are to provide a highly enjoyable and stimulating exchange of experience and ideas and to strike up new professional relationships. The European Circuit is open to lawyers from all Council of Europe countries and we hope that many of you will join us in September in Brussels.
