MORE than 150 Polish law students have attended the first ever Project Europe conference held outside the UK.
The conference, organised by the Trainee Solicitors Group (TSG) with the Polish branch of the European Law Students Association (ELSA), was staged at Warsaw University this month.
Planned by TSG international relations officer Dr David Taylor and retired judge George Dobry QC, the conference covered human rights, environmental law, and the Maastricht Treaty.
Taylor says the TSG's profile enabled the group to take the conference outside the UK. There are plans to hold similar events in other European locations including Kiev, Budapest and Slovakia.
"The TSG now has contacts in most of the major international law groups, and we are invited to attend international conferences almost every weekend. We are now the most powerful national student and young lawyer body in Europe," says Taylor.
