The ABA International Law Section members will gather to discuss shared and differing legal institutions, the future of the profession, groundbreaking issues, hot practice areas, recent developments and current trends—across Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean and North America.
Societies in Europe and the Americas share many legal values and institutions. Liberal democracy, respect for human rights and the rule of law, free trade, and largely market-based economies, tend to be the general rule. But constitutional, legal and regulatory frameworks differ, sometimes substantially, as do legal culture, developments and trends. These and other intriguing topics will be considered.
WilmerHale is a proud sponsor of this conference. WilmerHale Partner Danielle Morris will speak on investor legal and political risk when doing business in Latin America, in a session chaired by WilmerHale Associate Maria Camila Hoyos. Ms. Hoyos will also interview the keynote speakers at the conference's inaugural luncheon. WilmerHale Senior Associate Kelsey Quigley will moderate a panel discussion on the growing risks of environmental litigation for businesses and financial institutions.
