CareerBalance is pleased to see that that A GLOBAL LAW SUMMIT will be taking place in London in February 2015. It will bring together legal firms, regulatory bodies and the UK Government.
Announced by Secretary of State for Justice Chris Grayling in October, the summit will act as a showcase for the UK’s unrivalled legal expertise.
Mr Grayling said: “I am determined to help UK firms and lawyers succeed in the global race and develop the business opportunities created by their world class reputation.”
Sir David Wootton, Co-Chair of the Global Law Summit Board and a former Lord Mayor of London, said: “The year 2015 represents a unique opportunity to celebrate 800 years of legal history, and the Global Law Summit will be a fantastic way of showcasing the UK as a world leader in legal services and business, and promoting the Rule of Law.”
Maura McGowan QC, chairman of the Bar, added: “The UK is fiercely, and rightly, proud of its distinguished legal history. Hosting a legal summit of this kind in a global legal and financial centre is a fitting way of marking its continuing relevance and vital importance.”
