In April 2015, leading lawyers, academics, and policy-makers will come together at the historic Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, for an in-depth look at recent legal developments in Asia and their relevance to the Americas.
The inaugural Asia Desk Forum will provide a unique opportunity for private and public sector lawyers with an Asian dimension to the practice to extend and deepen their knowledge of cutting-edge legal issues through a series of workshops, panels, and lectures, led by those who know Asia best.
The Forum will consist of an Asian Law Academy, aimed at early-career lawyers, and a main Conference Program, organized around issues of acute relevance to Asian legal practice, such as international arbitration in Asia, doing business in India, recent developments in China and ASEAN, energy law, corporate social responsibility, and Latin America-Asia legal relations.
