I St. Petersburg International Legal Forum

The St. Petersburg International Legal Forum is the first and only platform of its kind for discussing the most pressing current legal issues relating to worldwide social and economic challenges. The Forum’s primary mission is to promote ideas for modernizing the law in response to global changes.

Ministers of Justice, Chairmen of Supreme Courts, General Secretaries of international organizations, in-house attorneys of leading companies and other members of the international legal community participate in the Forum every year.

In 2011 more than 700 participants from 35 countries took part in the Forum, including 19 official delegations. The Forum included a Plenary Session and 15 discussion sessions. The event was held at the Mikhailovsky Castle on May 19-21, 2011.

As part of the cultural programme guests of the Forum enjoyed the welcoming party in the Grand Hotel Europe and the performance by world famous jazz saxophonist Igor Butman.
