The Law Society and the Bar Council of England and Wales in partnership with the Russian Federal Chamber of Lawyers, the Moscow Chamber of Advocates, the St Petersburg Chamber of Advocates, the Anglo-Russian Law Association, and the British Russian Law Association are organising the fourth English Law Week in Moscow and St Petersburg from 20 to 23 November 2017. 

English Law Week alternates year on year with its twin event, Russian Law Week, which takes place in London, and has become a key event for legal professionals whose work involves interaction between England and Russia. Take a look at impressions from the latest Russian Law Week in 2016 here

This year’s conference is entitled The Law - A noble profession or just business?  and for the first time, takes place in two Russian cities, Moscow and St Petersburg. 

We are expecting 150 lawyers from the UK, Russia, and the wider CIS region to attend each day of the conference. Speakers from leading UK and Russian firms, institutions and corporations will be joining us to give their perspective on the legal services market in both jurisdictions.

Attached is the full conference programme. 

Registration for the conference in Moscow and St Petersburg are now open!
