Bar Leaders’ Conference 2018


13th Annual Bar Leaders’ Conference

23-24 May 2018, Grand Hotel, Oslo, Norway

A conference presented by the IBA Bar Issues Commission

Once again, this key event will bring together delegates from around the globe to discuss the latest developments, and so often thorny issues, affecting the profession of law today. This year’s programme will, as always, include input from expert panellists and commentators as well as encouraging interaction from delegates in several discussion sessions.

Topics include:
  • Rule of Law under attack: an analysis of the situation in Poland, Hungary and Venezuela
  • Are Bar Associations the new ministries of trade?
  • Trends in legal education and lawyer competence
  • What kind of Brexit agreement will be reached - hard, soft or none? What would be the likely consequences of each for lawyers and legal practice?
