About the seminar

Led by experienced barristers with accomplished international practices, the International Business Development seminar will provide barristers with the opportunity to develop and strengthen their international practice. 

Why attend

This seminar will:

  • Increase your understanding of the international business development opportunities available to the Bar and the benefit of such opportunities;
  • Provide comprehensive advice on how to establish an international practice and how you can best market yourself overseas; and
  • Equip you with knowledge on how to navigate international instructions from an ethical, financial and contractual perspective.

Frederico Singarajah, Kirsty Brimelow QC, Marion Smith QC and Camilla Godman will present a highly practical session, sharing their own experiences and perspectives, taking questions from the audience throughout. The panel will look at the what, how and why of building an international practice.
