In brief: Law Society builds bridges over Atlantic

The Law Society is organising a programme of events at the American Bar Association's Annual Meeting, taking place at Walt Disney World, Orlando in the first week of August. The programme is an attempt to facilitate contact between solicitors and American attorneys and raise the profile of solicitors in England and Wales. Events will include a showcase session 'Critical Business Law Issues in the New Europe – A Practitioners Guide' to be co-chaired by the Law Society president, organised visits to Orlando firms and a hospitality suite to encourage contact with US lawyers.
