CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST IN BAR COUNCIL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT VISIT TO CHINA NOVEMBER 2009

Plans are underway for a delegation comprised of representatives from both the Bar Council and Law Society to visit Shanghai, Hangzhou and Guangzhou the week beginning the 2 November to hold seminars on commercial areas of law in conjunction with regional bar associations. The visit will also be an opportunity to meet with local law firms and the alumni of the Lord Chancellors Training Scheme, who frequently hold senior positions within Chinese law firms.

The Bar’s delegation will be visiting another city in the Guangdong region (likely to be Shengzen) the following week to hold additional seminars and networking events to raise awareness of the expertise of the English Bar and how it can be utilised by Chinese lawyers.


All members of the bar are welcome to join the delegation for the seminars and networking events. There are some opportunities for speaking at seminars on commercial law topics. If interested in either opportunity please contact Sarah Richardson by Friday 11 September at SRichardson@BarCouncil.org.uk or on 0207 611 1316.
