Brussels Global Law Week 2017

The Perelman Centre would like to thank all the speakers, participants, guests and visitors for helping us successfully run the third edition (from 15 to 19 of May 2017) of the

Brussels Global Law Week

After the New York Global Law Week (2011) and the London Global Law Summit held in February 2015, the capital of Europe finally has its own forum on the globalization of law.
Reuniting theory and practice, the Brussels Global Law Week is an annual forum open to academics, researchers, students, NGOs, legal practitioners, regulators and decision-makers to discuss issues of law & globalization. Each year, special attention is drawn to both research in global and transnational legal theory and practical issues in specific sectors. The 2017 programme is attached hereby (please click on the following icon).
