International Events

When the Chancery Bar Association visits another jurisdiction it will usually run a conference or seminar aimed at the local legal profession with a number of UK based members speaking on topical legal issues.

In May 2018 the Chancery Bar Association will be visiting Shanghai, and is planning on holding a one-day conference on Friday 11 May 2018.  The event is organised with the support of the Shanghai Bar Association and Shanghai Law Society and more details will be published in due course.  This will be our first visit to Shanghai, and the event will build on the success of our May 2017 Hong Kong conference.

In October 2017 we held a conference in Gibraltar, which was organised with the support of Chief Justice Anthony Dudley and the General Council of the Bar in Gibraltar. In November 2016 we went to Guernsey and Jersey and, earlier in 2016, we visited the Cayman Islands for our third Cayman Conference.

In 2015 the ChBA had events in Gibraltar and Singapore.  The ChBA held a Joint Conference with the Singapore Academy of Law in March 2015 on "Equitable Remedies in Commercial Litigation".  The venue for the Conference was the Supreme Court Building in Singapore.  This Conference followed the very successful 2013 Conference between the ChBA and the Singapore Academy of Law on "Finance, Property and Business Litigation in a Changing World".

The ChBA has established a placement scheme for Caymanian articled clerks to spend time in members' chambers.  For more information, please click here.
