Building legal connections between the UK and Latin America

Following on from our successful inaugural ‘English Law Week’ conference in Mexico in September 2018, we, in partnership with the Bar Council of England and Wales, are organising ’English Law Week’ in Mexico and Colombia from 2-6th September. The events will take place in Mexico City in Mexico and Bogota in Colombia.

We will also be working closley with the applicable bar associations and chambers of commerce to deliver this event.

  • Mexico City: 3 day event 2-4th September
  • Bogota, Colombia: 2 day event 5-6th September 

What is English Law Week in Mexico and Colombia?

English Law Week in Mexico and Colombia will bring together lawyers from the respective jurisdictions for an exciting conference event on English law. It will include panel discussions, case studies and roundtables on applicable and relevant areas of law, as well as various networking activities, including networking receptions likely to be held at the British Ambassadors’ Residences in both Mexico and Colombia. 

Please see this year’s draft programme on the right hand-side of this webpage for more information on the event and the legal areas that will be covered in both jurisdictions. Please note that the draft programme is subject to change.
