Russian Law Week meets English Law Week 2020

Following the success of last year's 10th anniversary of the organisation of English/Russian Law Week, the Law Society of England and Wales and the Bar Council, in cooperation with our partners, are organising a special virtual bridging event, which will encompass issues of both Russian law and English law. The event will be held from 23 to 25 November 2020.

Our partners for this event are the:

  • Russian Federal Chamber of Lawyers
  • Moscow Chamber of Advocates
  • St Petersburg Chamber of Advocates
  • Anglo-Russian Law Association
  • British Russian Law Association

This year's event will continue to celebrate the friendships, legal links and business between the two countries and will take stock of the events held during the past 10 years. Speakers from leading UK and Russian firms, institutions and corporations will give their perspective on the legal services market in both jurisdictions.
