Forum starts in

Legal Forum Live

The Legal Forum Live project is unique and in-demand type of participating in the St. Petersburg International Legal Forum. LFL offers an opportunity to organize а regional event worldwide under the authority of SPBILF during its work. These events are mostly based on the online broadcasts of the Forum’s discussion sessions and exchange of opinions on the opened issue. However, the programme and format of the venue’s work is left to the discretion of its organizers.

Participation in the LFL project gives the opportunity for:

  • holding an event under the SPBILF brand in the most relevant format (conference / round table / seminar);
  • establishing a dialogue with partners during the preparation and holding of the event;
  • discussing topical legal issues and trends among colleagues and sending the list of questions and suggestions to the Organizing Committee addressed to the world-class experts;
  • attracting an attention of the legal world community to your organization: at the SPBILF website there is a map with organizations that are taking part in the Legal Forum Live.

Legal Forum Live History

The first start of the Legal Forum Live was in 2016 in the context of the St. Petersburg International Legal Forum: 35 LFL events gathered more than 2000 participants from 33 cities of Russia and CIS countries.

Results of the Legal Forum Live 2016 are available here.

In 2017 in the context of VII SPBILF, universities, law agencies, representatives of the local autonomous bodies traditionally showed their great interest to the project. Also, Legal Forum Live 2017 attracted brand new participants such as representatives of Russia’s leading banks and representatives of the business community.

Legal Forum Live 2017 brought together 46 organizers from 33 cities of Russia, CIS and near-abroad countries. For the first time, the organizer from Finland (Helsinki) took part in the project. Among organizers are: 19 universities, 13 legal agencies, 6 business representatives, 3 associations, 2 chambers of commerce, 1 non-governmental organization, Federal Notary Chamber and Department for reorganization and bankruptcy of the Ministry of Economy of the Republic of Belarus.

In 2018 once more the project gathered lots of universities, legal agencies, associations and leading banks of our country among its participants, who hadn’t only organized their own regional events, but who had received an opportunity to introduce something new within the project. This year Legal Forum Live organizers had managed to talk not only about legal issues being on the agenda all over our country, but, at the same time, to discuss specific topics with the representatives of their own regional legal society.

The events’ results, photos, interviews and, also, unique articles are published in the SPBILF Digest, keep up for updates.
