Following the success of the fourth Russian Law Week conference in London and English Law Week 2017 in Moscow and St Petersburg,  the Law Society and the Bar Council in partnership with the Federal Chamber of Lawyers of the Russian Federation, the Moscow Chamber of Advocates, the St Petersburg Chamber of Advocates, the British Russian Law Association, and the Anglo-Russian Law Association are organising the fifth Russian Law Week conference in London from 12 to 13 November 2018. 

Russian Law Week will bring together Russian and UK legal practitioners and business representatives to promote legal links and business between the two countries. It is a fantastic opportunity for English and Welsh legal practitioners to meet with Russian counterparts to discuss current trends in legal services in Russia and England and Wales. 

The programme includes high profile panel discussions chaired by well-known legal experts on the following topics:

  • Regulation of the Legal Profession
  • Latest Legal Developments in FinTech
  • Changes in the Regulation of Bankruptcy
  • Update on Arbitration Reform in Russia
  • Soft skills for the 2020s – what characteristics will distinguish the best lawyers of the future?
  • Ethics in International Arbitration
  • Russian Anti-Sanctions Measures

The conference is part of our wider, on-going efforts to strengthen links between the legal professions of the two jurisdictions and will look in detail at how best to cater to the demands of both countries increasingly global businesses and legal requirements.
