Russian Law Week to Take Place in London in December 2014

londonThe Bar Council is holding the third Russian Law Week in London from 1 to 3 December 2014.

Partners of the event include 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. The event follows the success of  Russian Law Week 2012 in London and English Law Week 2013 in Moscow.

CIS Arbitration Forum is a media sponsor of the event.

Russian Law Week 2014 will bring together Russian and UK legal academics and lawyers to promote legal links and business between the two countries. It is a fantastic opportunity for UK legal practitioners to meet with Russian counterparts to discuss current trends in legal services in Russia and England and Wales.

Russian Law Week in London alternates year on year with its twin event, English Law Week taking place in Moscow. English Law Week (ELW) 2011, Russian Law Week 2012 and ELW 2013 were great successes. ELW 2013 attracted over 150 English and Russian lawyers working in the UK and Russia for firms or in-house. It effectively showed how practitioners from both jurisdictions could work together to develop an annual programme that is both practical and useful for the sector.

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

  • Investment climate in Russia
  • De-offshorisation
  • Changes to the Russian Civil Code
  • Merger of the Supreme Court and the High Arbitrazh Court of the Russian Federation
  • Arbitration in Russia, and
  • Enforcement of English Arbitral Awards and Court Judgements in Russia.
