LexMex returns to the Law Society on Thursday, 5th October.

Learn about key developments and opportunities in the Mexican legal market. LexMex 2017 is an opportunity to network with leading Mexican lawyers in a range of practice areas, including capital markets, energy, employment law and dispute resolution.

LexMex is an annual event organised by the Law Society of England and Wales and the Mexican Chamber of Commerce in Great Britain, and joined this year by the Bar Council. It aims to foster closer relations between the legal professions in our countries.

This year’s event will include a keynote address by Judge Mariana Rodríguez Mier y Terán, Judge of the State of Tamaulipas, on ‘Implementation of the Oral Adversarial Justice System in Mexico’.

In the afternoon, participants can choose to attend one of four breakout sessions, each focused on a particular area of law. Please note that lunch will not be provided.
