SPBILF Business Programme and Partnership

SPBILF Business Programme


The Programme Committee thanks all those of you who have helped us to pinpoint the most relevant topics by contributing their thoughtfully articulated agenda ideas for the VII SPBILF.

The Preliminary Programme is soon to be posted on the SPBILF website. Watch out for updates!

In preparation for the VII SPBILF, we are running a series of conferences, focusing on current issues that are of concern to members of the legal profession and the business community. The issues raised by these conferences, and the outputs of the debates, will give us a solid groundwork for planning the roundtables to be featured on the SPBILF Business Programme in 2017.

The conferences are organized by LF Academy, the online education resource for legal professionals, the central mission of which is to disseminate legal knowledge of the highest quality, coming from the acknowledged leaders of the professional services community.

There are just over 15 conferences on our current schedule, which have been tentatively agreed on. The regulators Rostekhnadzor, Roskomnadzor, Rostrud, Rosfinmonitoring and the Skolkovo School of Management have joined us as co-hosts alongside our customary partners Rospotrebnadzor, Rosreestr, Rospatent, Antimonopoly Service, Taxation Service, Central Bank, Skolkovo Foundation, and the Federal Office of Court Bailiffs.

Ask the Regulator

LF Academy


LF Academy covers all branches of law and law enforcement in video lectures by the best in the field. It is a cutting-edge online educational resource combining limitless technological opportunities for online learning with singularly valuable content presented in lecture form.

The LF Academy project is a segue to the St. Petersburg International Legal Forum, where top lawyers from more than 80 countries meet every year to share their knowledge and expertise. Over the past six years, the SPILF hosts have built unique partnering relationships with a broad-based contingent of the leading experts in law, whose knowledge and experience are difficult to overestimate. These partnerships demand broader avenues for the propagation of law and its best practice in a steady mode, as opposed to only during the days of the Forum.

We are proud to name the leaders in their respective branches of law, who represent the pertinently specialized government regulations, among our partners and co-workers.

Dear Colleagues, today we bring you the singular opportunity to address your questions to the regulators directly!

The answers to your questions will be posted on the LF Academy website. Sign in on www.LFAcademy.ru to stay current on our news!
