Asia Desk Forum 15-18 April 2015

In April 2015, leading lawyers, academics, and policy-makers will come together at the historic Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, for an in-depth look at recent legal developments in Asia and their relevance to the Americas.

The inaugural Asia Desk Forum will provide a unique opportunity for private and public sector lawyers with an Asian dimension to the practice to extend and deepen their knowledge of cutting-edge legal issues through a series of workshops, panels, and lectures, led by those who know Asia best.

The Forum will consist of an Asian Law Academy, aimed at early-career lawyers, and a main Conference Program, organized around issues of acute relevance to Asian legal practice, such as international arbitration in Asia, doing business in India, recent developments in China and ASEAN, energy law, corporate social responsibility, and Latin America-Asia legal relations.

Organized through UVic Law and the Centre for Asia-Pacific Initiatives (CAPI), the Asia Desk Forum will extend over four days, from 15-18 April 2015, in British Columbia’s spectacular capital district. In addition to the Asian Law Academy and Conference Program, the Asia Desk Forum will provide opportunities for professional networking, recruitment, and career development. Many of the conference workshops will be CPD accredited.
