In brief: Law Society stages international event

The Law Society will hold its second Special Event for the International Legal Community at Chancery Lane on 28 June. The event, established last year to encourage contact between the Law Society, foreign lawyers and UK solicitors interested in the field of international law, will include a speech from Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster David Hunt MP, a former practising solicitor. Hunt will speak on Britain and the European Union: 'The opportunities for London as a legal and commercial centre'.
