On Thursday 25 and Friday 26 April 2019, Lizzette Robleto de Howarth and Lauren Thornton undertook the first Law Society mission to Croatia.
During these two days, they met with a wide range of stakeholders including: the Croatia Bar Association, the Faculty of Law (University of Zagreb), the Croatian Women’s Lawyers Association, the President of the Zagreb Bar Association Ms Masa Gluhinic, and the Human Rights House (Zagreb branch).
They also held an informal bilateral conversation with Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Croatia, H.E. Andrew Dalgleish, with whom they discussed potential initiatives in this jurisdiction. In addition, the Law Society held its first “International Women and the Law” roundtable, organised by the Croatian Women’s Lawyers Association, at the residency of H.E. Ambassador Dalgleish who was very supportive of this project.
The Law Society will be undertaking follow up activities in the near future to consolidate these newly-formed relationships.
