FBLS European Arrest Warrant Event (2016) Flyer (PDF)

Extradition under the European Arrest Warrant

Thursday 29 September 2016, from 4pm to 6pm

The Boardroom, University of Westminster, 309 Regent Street, London W1B 2U

There are a number of agreements requiring courts and other judicial authorities in EU member states to give effect to judgments and orders issued by similar bodies in other EU countries. The European Arrest Warrant (« EAW ») is the most popular of these « mutual recognition » measures. The operation of the EAW through the UK’s Extradition Act has given rise to problems between British and French authorities in particular.

What will happen now that the UK has voted to leave the European Union? Is this a threat to EU/UK criminal co-operation post « Brexit » or is this an opportunity to reform the EAW to enhance its utility?

The event is free of charge and is accredited for 2 hours CPD points with the SRA, the Bar Standards Board and the Ecole de Formation du Barreau

Going Digital – Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Financial Services @ Herbert Smith Freehills
Oct 24 @ 14:00 – 18:00

Our world and the organisations we work for are increasingly shaped by algorithms. They are everywhere, fed by an increasing quantity of data. This conference is aimed at those who would like to understand better what Big Data and Artificial Intelligence are by looking their implications for financial services, by focusing on cyber security, data analytics and machine learning – and considering how their organisations need to adapt.

Experts will explain in language accessible to ordinary people what Big Data and Artificial Intelligence are, and representatives of French and British governmental authorities will explain their approach to developing relevant policy and rules of governance. The developing law in the U.K., France, EU and USA will be considered to see if it is keeping up with innovation.

 

This event is organised by the FBLS in co-operation with the Franco British Council.

The attendance fee is £40 for FBLS members and £50 for non-members. To reserve a place, please email the Administrator at fbls@outlook.com. Numbers are limited and registration will be on a first-come first-served basis.

Avr 11 @ 14:00 – 16:30
Joint Seminar Law Society / French Bar (CNB) @ The Law Society of England and Wales | England | United Kingdom

This event is now fully booked 

 

The Law Society and the French Bar (Conseil National des Barreaux) are organising a seminar on 11 April 2018 in London.

The seminar aims to discuss issues of importance to both jurisdictions, and to facilitate greater cooperation within the legal profession. Two panels of experts will discuss the latest developments, challenges and opportunities in France and England and Wales on two different topics:

The first panel will discuss the impact of Brexit on the legal profession both in England and Wales, and in France. Priorities for the legal sector, latest developments in the EU-UK negotiations, regulation of foreign lawyers in England and Wales and France – challenges under WTO rules, and trade models for legal services will be discussed.

Legal technology, or Legal Tech, that is the use of technology and software to provide legal services, has gained significant traction over the last few years. Innovation in the legal sector, how it changes the way legal services are delivered, and implications for the legal profession in both jurisdictions will be discussed.

There will be plenty of networking opportunities, including during the drinks reception after the seminar.

Please find the programme attached: >>>PROGRAMME<<<

Attendance is free but places are limited and booking compulsory

Vues comparées sur la composition des tribunaux arbitraux @ Société de Législation Comparée
Mai 28 @ 17:00 – 20:00

Conférente gratuite, voir le flyer: 2018 05 28 – Vues comparées sur la composition des tribunaux arbitraux

La section arbitrage de la Société de Législation Comparée et l’Association des Juristes Franco-Britanniques organisent conjointement une conférence proposant des vues comparées sur la composition des tribunaux arbitraux, qui se tiendra le lundi 28 mai 2018 à Paris.

Cette phase initiale et indéniablement vitale de la procédure arbitrale, comporte des enjeux stratégiques importants. Une irrégularité de constitution peut menacer la validité de la sentence. En la matière, les règles d’indépendance et d’impartialité des arbitres sont capitales, mais leur interprétation est sujette à discussion.

Le choix des arbitres, leur nombre, leur nationalité, qu’il s’agisse d’un arbitrage ad hoc ou institutionnel, le choix offert aux parties peut être complexe et chronophage.

Ainsi, par l’intervention de professionnels issus à la fois du système français, anglais, gallois, écossais, irlandais et même suisse, cette conférence a pour objet d’apporter des vues comparées sur la composition des tribunaux arbitraux qui mettra notamment en lumière les divergences/convergences entre les systèmes des pays de tradition civiliste et les pays de droit coutumier (Common Law).
