Round-table discussion on the Future of International Private Law in Scotland

Edinburgh Law School is delighted to be hosting a special round-table discussion to discuss the future of International Private Law in Scotland 


The event, which takes place on Friday 25th September, 5:00 to 7:00pm, is intended to be a 'no holds barred' examination of the current state of the subject and its future. Discussions will include analyses of academic teaching and research, legal practice at the bar and in the solicitors' branch of the profession, policy and Scottish Government involvement, law reform, CPD and judicial training, and the European Union.

We will be welcoming three central speakers to talk on these compelling issues: Janeen Carruthers (University of Glasgow), Michael Clancy (The Law Society of Scotland), and Nicola Wisdahl (Scottish Government Justice Directorate). The meeting will be followed by a wine reception.

This round-table discussion is one of the events of the British Academy funded project Private International Law and the Development of Integrated Markets(PILIM) led by Dr. Veronica Ruiz Abou-Nigm.
