Additionally, there are sessions on a wide range of topics, such as the challenges of law firm management and international relationships, ethics, the future of the legal profession, and the rule of law and human rights. You can hear from some of the leading thinkers in law today through a series of Showcase sessions highlighting the role the legal profession plays in society. The conference provides everything from the opportunity to learn from the world’s leading practitioners, to being part of the debate on the future of the law.
