Overview

Are we truly at an anti-globalization moment? If we aren’t, then what is happening? If we are, what does it mean for international lawyers and business people and what can history teach us?

What are the implications for cross-border transactions? What do international lawyers need to know? Join private practice lawyers and in-house counsel from more than 20 countries for these important, practical discussions. Leave this program better able to represent clients engaged in international business.
