Representation, Education and Support for Employed Barristers
The Bar Council: Speaking Opportunities for the Bar in Mexico
Wednesday, 23rd May 2018
3-5 September 2018, Mexico City
The Bar Council is working with the Law Society of England and Wales, the Mexican Chamber of Commerce and the three main national bar associations in Mexico to deliver the first English Law Week in Mexico City from 3-5 September 2018.
The event offers barristers a unique opportunity to promote English law overall as well as raise their professional profile in this important and developing legal market. The event will bring together legal professionals across Mexico and the UK to discuss recent updates in English and Mexican law including: fintech, oil and gas, maritime, international arbitration, corporate governance, anti-money laundering and financial regulation and more.
Mexico is the second largest economy in Latin America, after Brazil, and analysts predict that it will be the world´s seventh-largest by 2050. Economic reforms, including opening up the energy sector and reforming the financial system has sparked a series of high-level exchanges between the UK and Mexico, including a visit by the Secretary of State for International Trade, Liam Fox, last year.
With trade relations between the UK and Mexico strengthening, Mexican law firms are increasingly looking beyond the US legal profession and New York law. The UK has been playing an important role in recent developments to the Mexican legal system, including in relation to their new Fintech law. Because of this, there is an increasing need to learn more about each other's legal systems and promote how barristers can cooperate with the Mexican legal profession.
Opportunities for the Bar exist in arbitration, particularly in the energy, reinsurance and retrocession sector, as well as in providing transactional and dispute advice or acting as expert witnesses on issues of English law.
There are also opportunities arising for members of the traditionally publicly funded bar in the field of business crime, anti-corruption/money-laundering, asset tracing and cross border family issues.
The deadline for applications has been extended to Friday 1 June 2018.
If you have any queries in relation to the programme, please contact Jessica Crofts-Lawrence at JCrofts-Lawrence@BarCouncil.org.uk
