English Law Week Mexico and Colombia 2 - 6 September 2019

Following on from our successful inaugural English Law Week in Mexico in September 2018, the Bar Council, jointly with the Law Society, organised a second edition in Mexico City from 2-3 September..

This was followed by our first-ever English Law Day in Colombia in Bogota on 5 September. This follows the Bar Council's strategy to develop knowledge about the international legal services of the Bar among law firms in Latin America's most important legal markets. We began with a campaign in Brazil from 2012, expanded to Mexico last year and have this year gone on include the third largest legal market, Colombia.

Both events brought together lawyers from the respective jurisdictions for exciting conference events on areas of English law most relevant to local practitioners. This included panel discussions, case studies and roundtables, as well as various networking activities, including a networking reception, hosted by the British Ambassador at her residence in Mexico.

Both events would not have been possible without the invaluable support from our sponsors and partners. In Mexico, our partners were the three main bar associations, ANADE, INCAM and BMA, and our sponsors were DAC Beachcroft and TraduWeb. In Colombia, our partners were ANDI [in full] and the British Colombian Chamber of Commerce. We would like to say a huge thank you to all our partners and sponsors.

Both Mexico and Colombia are important and growing legal markets for the Bar Council and our members, providing  opportunities for a number of specialisms.At this point we are planning to visit both Mexico and Colombia once more in September 2020.

Please see this year's programme brochures for more information on the topics covered and watch out for news of next year's event in future editions of our international newsletter.
