BIENNIAL MEETING, ANDORRA, 10-13 JULY 2018
RCSL WORKING GROUP ON COMPARATIVE STUDIES OF LEGAL PROFESSIONS
We are pleased to announce that registration is now open for the forthcoming Biennial Meeting of the RCSL Working Group on Comparative Study of Legal Professions. The meeting will take place in the Arthotel, Andorra la Vella, Andorra – the same venue as the last meeting in 2016 – on 10–13 July 2018.
Andorra is a small European country in the Pyrenees between France and Spain, known for skiing (in winter) and walking (in summer) and for duty-free shopping. The main language is Catalan but French, Spanish and Portuguese are also spoken – and, in the tourist areas, English. The currency is the euro although Andorra is not in the European Union. There is no airport in Andorra, so to reach the venue you must take a coach from Barcelona or Toulouse. The hotel is extremely comfortable and the food excellent.
Papers are invited on any aspect of the sociology of the Legal Professions. The Working Group has 13 sub-groups covering a range of topics from Legal Education to International Lawyering and from Legal Histories to Gender in the Legal Profession. A number of comparative projects have been produced, and Working Group members are currently working on a major international survey of Lawyers and Society.
