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.
Prof. Jim Corkery
CLE Paris Co-Chairperson
