On behalf of CLE Paris, I am delighted to invite you to join us in Paris, France for our fourth CLE Paris Global Law Conference to be held on the 4th and 5th of January 2018. 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 will consider the law and its practice in a global environment.
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. In 2018 we are visiting the ICC International Court of Arbitration, the National Archives and are repeating our very own “Law Professors’ Tour” – a legal / historical walking tour of Paris led by Professors Gerard Carney and Pascale Bloch.
I hope that you will accept this invitation and join us in Paris.
