The British Institute of International and Comparative Law organises a Seminar Series on Private International Law, which, since 2006, has been kindly sponsored by Herbert Smith Freehills. It consists of several seminars each year, focusing on recent developments of topical importance for legal practice in the field of economically relevant Private International Law and international commercial litigation at all levels - national, European and global. The series provides a forum for debate and exchange between leading lawyers, judges, academics and other specialist practitioners as well as representatives of businesses and government and intergovernmental officials.
The series considers the European Private International Law system as well as global issues of Private International Law, which have an important impact on UK law and practice. Increasing globalisation and continuous harmonisation of rules on conflict of laws and jurisdictions created new dynamics and augmented the need to impart knowledge of and exchange ideas on practical problems of cross-border transactions and international litigation.
