Your Invitation

Dear Colleagues

On behalf of CLE Paris, I am delighted to invite you to join us in Paris, France for our fifth CLE Paris Global Law Conference to be held from 3 to 5 January 2019. Paris, steeped in beauty, history and legal significance, provides us with a truly unique atmosphere to learn, share knowledge, develop business relationships and make new friends.

Lawyers, judges and law educators are now working in a globally dynamic and technologically diverse framework. Courts, lawyers, and legal services are being pushed across borders. Civil law jurisdictions are blending with common law systems; laws and systems are converging. Traditional legal positions and views are changing. To this end, CLE Paris aims to consider searching questions, argument for change, best practice insights and cutting-edge trends, relating to the law as it is applied globally.

We are bringing together international leaders in their legal fields to speak with us in a format encouraging inspiration, stimulation, and conversation. The Paris venue puts the program in touch with one of the greatest historical civil law jurisdictions, and in a country that is determined to take a lead in emerging global and transnational trends.

We will also continue our privately organised, law inspired excursions and are repeating our very own “Law Professors’ Tour”.

I hope that you will accept this invitation and join us in Paris.

Kind Regards,
Jim

Venue | Excursions

Venue

Our 2019 event will be held at the Dorchester Collection’s Le Meurice, “Hotel of Kings”, in its Salon Pompadour, pictured above.

This magical ballroom has been classified as a place of cultural heritage. Musical instruments adorn the ceiling in honour of Marquise de Pompadour who was the patron of arts and music and the history of this room reflects the legacy of splendour and art at Le Meurice. This is where Picasso celebrated his wedding to the Russian ballet dancer, Olga Khokhlova.

Michelin Star Lunches

Join us in Salon Tuileries at Le Meurice where we will enjoy three-course lunches prepared under the supervision of the Le Meurice team of Michelin star chefs, Alain Ducasse and Jocelyn Herland.

Private Visits

Every year, CLE Paris arranges private visits for our delegates to places of legal significance.

In 2019, we will be visiting:

  1. the Musée de la Préfecture de Police; and
  2. the Musée de la Contrefaçon.

In addition, which is now a tradition of CLE Paris, we will be repeating our “Law Professors’ Tour” – which is a tour of the Pantheon, led by Professors Gerard Carney and Pascale Bloch, to hear the stories of the great French lawyers who have passed before us.

We hope you will join us.

Previously, we have visited:

  • Council of State (Counsel d’Etat – Palais Royal)
  • Court of Appeal of Paris (Cour d’appel de Paris – Palais de Justice)
  • National Archives Paris (Archives Nationales Paris)
  • Pantheon-Sorbonne University (Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne) – Law School and Law Library
  • French Senate at the Palais du Luxemburg
  • The old Sorbonne – established in the 13th century, it is one of the world’s oldest university sites.
  • French Parliament (Assemblée Nationale);
  • The ICC International Court of Arbitration.

This following video is a presentation on the trial of the last Queen of France, Marie Antoinette, by Prof. Gerard Carney. It was presented in the same courtroom in which Marie Antoinette was tried, at the Palais de Justice. It was presented as part of the CLE Paris 2017 Global Law Conference on 5 January 2017.
