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.

 The conference will include high profile panel discussions chaired by well-known legal experts including judges, academics and lawyers focusing on the following areas.

  • Recent English judgments involving Russian and CIS parties
  • Case study of a claim in England involving Russian parties
  • International arbitration
  • Competition law issues – Brexit and EU regulations
  • Business as usual – current models and trends in the organisation of law
  • Recovering assets through bankruptcy and liquidation 
  • Keeping the profession noble – is the current regulatory framework fit for purpose?

Attached is the full conference programme. 

Sponsorship opportunity

English Law Week provides sponsors with access to legal practitioners and academics from Russia, the UK and other CIS region, who are looking to explore and understand the latest developments in English Law. As well as providing a key platform to network with both UK and Russian practitioners, the conference also offers any potential sponsors a range of promotional tools.
