The Law Society in cooperation with the Bar Council of England and Wales and the UK Ministry of Justice is organising a Legal is Great summit in Kazakhstan from 23-25 April. The event will take place in Astana and Almaty. Find attached the proposed itinerary for full details.

As Central Asia’s largest economy, Kazakhstan represents an enormous opportunity for UK lawyers and law firms dealing with cross border issues.
