ICLR Conference 2019
Law Society of Scotland | Edinburgh
4-6 September 2019
ICLR is pleased to announce that the host organisation for the ICLR conference in 2019 will be the Law Society of Scotland and the conference will take place in Edinburgh between 4-6 September 2019. Please hold these dates. We were also grateful to the Kenyan Council for Legal Education and Law Society of Kenya for submitting a well-supported bid and we hope that the conference will be in Nairobi soon.
Alison Atack, President of the Law Society of Scotland, said:
“We are delighted and honoured to be hosting the 8th International Conference of Legal Regulators in 2019 – the year we celebrate our 70th anniversary.
Regulation of the legal profession is an issue at the top of our agenda following a recent review of regulation of legal services in Scotland. We are keen to share our experiences and learn from our fellow regulators in other jurisdictions as we examine the importance of having a regulatory framework which can support growth in the legal services sector, while also placing consumer interests firmly at its heart.
We will work closely with the conference organisers to develop an interesting, forward-thinking programme for ICLR members – highlighting some of our most recent initiatives such as LawscotTech which aims to drive innovation in legal technology through collaboration between the legal, academic and tech sectors, Lawscot Wellbeing which offers support for busy legal professionals and of course we will be looking at the impact of Brexit on the profession – both at home and overseas – after we leave the EU on 29 March next year.
I am very much looking forward to welcoming our colleagues from the ICLR community to our wonderful capital city next year.”
