The Centre for Trade and Investment Law (CTIL), in collaboration with the Department of
Commerce (Ministry of Commerce and Industry) (DoC), Confederation of Indian Industries
(CII) and Services Export Promotion Council (SEPC), intends to invite members of the legal
fraternity, including lawyers practising in courts as well as law firms and corporations,
academicians from the top law schools of the country, including law students, and the legal
experts from LPOs and BPOs to participate in discussions on the future of legal services
sector and the possibilities for making India a hub for international commercial arbitration.
As part of GES, 2018, the annual flagship global event for increasing trade in services, the
event will solicit participation from stakeholders in the government’s policy-making process,
in light of the recent judgment of the Hon’ble Supreme Court in Bar Council of India v. A.K. Balaji and Ors.
In addition to the discussions, the event will ensure an interactive environment in which law schools, academicians and practitioners would connect to enhance strategic cooperation and strengthen multilateral relationships between all the stakeholders. We intend to provide an opportunity for law schools to exhibit their academic credentials and connect with legal professionals, law firms, government representatives and members of the academia.
While the law firms can avail the opportunity to interact with law schools to seek young law graduates, on the one hand, and to cooperate with representatives of government and academia for contributing in the policy-making process and research activities, on the other.
