Program

The theme chosen for the conference is “Connectivity and Convergence”.  The world of legal activity is becoming ever more connected as a result of the internet, modern forms of transport and by virtue of numerous Free Trade, Economic Partnership and similar arrangements.  As a consequence there is a great need for “convergence” and harmonization of laws and procedures across borders – so the theme is very timely.
