Founded in 1966, the Anglo Dutch Exchange (ADE) is a biennial event for young lawyers from England and Wales and the Netherlands, which is hosted by each jurisdiction on an alternate basis. It is a joint venture of:

  • The Young Barristers’ Committee of the General Council of the Bar of England and Wales (YBC)
  • The London Young Lawyers’ Group (LYLG)
  • The Junior Lawyers Division of the Law Society of England and Wales (JLD)
  • The Young Bar Associations of Amsterdam, The Hague and Rotterdam.

The purpose of the ADE is to foster a better understanding of our counterparts’ legal and judicial system and of their commercial and cultural environments, as well as to establish closer links between the two jurisdictions.

In summary:

  • This year, up to 40 lawyers from the Netherlands will be given the opportunity to visit England for a five-day programme.
  • The dates are Monday 1 October to Friday 5 October 2018.
  • The visiting lawyers will stay with host lawyers in London, attending lectures with leading local law firms and visiting cultural and legal landmarks.
  • The ADE will conclude with a gala dinner.

We are looking for barristers and solicitors willing to host a Dutch lawyer between 1-6 October 2018 in London.

A full programme of events for the visiting Dutch lawyers will be provided so – after the initial meet and greet, and dinner – hosts will only be expected to provide their guests with accommodation and breakfast.
