CECJ SPECIALIZATIONS

The topics for CECJ events are selected based on the analysis of needs of clients, with a focus on clients coming from the post-Soviet countries, who have business interests abroad

Most clients from Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and other CIS countries prefer to solve their issues with the help of trusted lawyers in their country, and this translates into two distinct categories of participants in our seminars. The first category is represented by the aforementioned local lawyers from the CIS countries who know that at the CECJ events they will receive answers to their questions, will be able to determime the best case-specific strategy, choose the right jurisdiction for future projects, find foreign partners with multiple specialisms as to provide their clients with a quality solution. The second category is represented by legal professionals from the EU countries, Great Britain, Switzerland, USA, UAE, etc., who know that they will get access to comparative legal analysis within the framework of the stated topic and will establish new professional contacts for possible further cooperation with foreign colleagues including trusted lawyers from Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and other CIS countries.

    The European Center for Legal Cooperation (CECJ) has become an integral part of the legal training arena for lawyers from all over the world and the “platform” where it is possible to exchange national and international professional experiences with colleagues. This continuous exchange of information and experiences between colleagues from different countries (both EU and non-EU) is an essential element for those who, like me, look abroad both to expand their clientele and to strengthen professional exchanges with colleagues having different cultural backgrounds. In a world where cross-border cases are increasingly frequent, the CECJ provides the most valid and current answers to many problems that this intense legal traffic constantly poses to the legal practitioners. Even those who work mostly in the national sphere alone can benefit from the courses and seminars offered by the CECJ, considering the ever-increasing ‘intrusiveness’ of international law within national systems.

    Participant of CECJ seminars in: Moscow, St.Petersbourg and Rome

    Thanks to the participation in the CECJ events I was able to understand the economic dynamics of the Russian market, exchanging experience with potential clients and foreign investors. CECJ has given me a new “key to understanding” the functioning of the Russian legal world and its interaction with the international actors.

    It was a very constructive experience that allowed me not only to broaden my range of action, but also to discuss multiple issues with numerous foreign professionals from different countries and with different legal specializations. A daring interaction of cultures and legal systems that has indelibly enriched my professionalism.

    I had the opportunity to attend the events in Moscow and St Petersburg in 2016, during which I was impressed by how extremely well prepared the events were in terms of accommodation, transportation and organization as well as by the excellent condition of the venues. The events that took place were also extremely successful in terms of gathering a large number of lawyers from Russia and abroad from various legal backgrounds. The way the events took place also gave me the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with all the participants enabling me to make new friends and establish key contacts from various jurisdictions, including Russia, Italy, Romania, Germany, Spain and Mexico. The contacts I have made in the events proved to be of paramount importance, especially whenever I had to deal with legal issues, substantive or procedural, on foreign law. In addition to the networking opportunities and the productive exchange of ideas, we also had the opportunity to spend time with the rest of the participants and enjoy Moscow and St Petersburg. Overall, I am really glad that I was given the opportunity to participate in this event and I fully recommend it to anyone interested in the future.

    In January 2015, I took part in a CECJ program on international commercial arbitration in cooperation with HKIAC. This was part of the CECJ’s multi-state program on comparative legal analysis of various arbitration centers around the world that included a joint CECJ and CIArb course to receive FCIArb status. Later, I learned about CECJ seminars on Chinese law for foreign businesses in Beijing and Shanghai. The format, where Chinese lawyers speak to their foreign counterparts whose clients are interested in the Chinese market, is extremely effective. I enjoyed speaking to an audience whose business interests aligned with my legal specialization. CECJ events are not just mere presentations, as elements of professional networking are woven into them very organically. In China and Hong Kong, Russian lawyers met with their Chinese colleagues in private practice, representatives of international law firms, and members of the Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong Bar Associations. It is great that now not only Russian lawyers, but lawyers from all over the world can participate in CECJ programs. I am also pleased to learn that there are plans to hold events for foreign professionals in China. We have a lot of common issues and points of contact with international lawyers, and such projects help promote mutually beneficial cooperation. I wish you success and look forward to participating in upcoming CECJ programs.

    Dealing mainly with international commercial law, I have welcomed the CECJ initiatives with great interest. In particular, in 2016 I participated in the events held in Moscow and St. Petersburg, while in 2017 I took part in the event held in Rome.

    The events organized by CECJ are aimed at facilitating the formation of a professional network of lawyers, operating in different countries and territorial areas, through the use of the networking rotation-based “round table” system; that is providing a pre-determined number of colleagues an opportunity to explore and discuss issues of common interest.

    As far as my personal experience is concerned, the aforementioned organizational scheme has proved to be absolutely fruitful, both because it has favoured the expansion of my network of professional contacts which can be referred to for future cases involving jurisdictions other than the Italian one, and because it enabled me to offer legal advice to foreign clients with interests in Italy.

    Moreover, even from a purely practical point of view, the overall organization of the events in which I took part turned out to be of a high level and without any gaps.

Каждый участник владеет уникальными знаниями в разных областях права, и это позволяет каждому адвокату расширять сеть своих деловых контактов с коллегами из разных стран и по разным специализациям. Мероприятие было очень хорошо организовано. Презентации были интересными. Надеюсь, что смогу принять участие и в следующих мероприятиях CECJ.

    CECJ is a body that organizes various training events for lawyers from different countries of the world. I have an excellent experience of cooperation with CECJ in the context of events organized in Moscow, St. Petersburg, New York and Rome in the period from 2016 to 2019. These events have been planned with seriousness and commitment. Each event is thoroughly studied and prepared, and no detail is left to chance. In particular, I would like to focus on the excellent networking opportunities with colleagues. The CECJ Speed Legal Networking has a clear time regulation, and every attendee – this is very convenient – is provided with a printed directory containing professional profiles of the participants. Every minute of networking counts and I have to say that the benefits are substantial. In my law firm I work a lot with international clients, which makes it possible for me to say with confidence that CECJ events are a unique platform to start collaborations abroad bypassing professional associations in full independence. After every CECJ event I always want to repeat it, also for all the business opportunities that it creates.

    Speaker of CECJ seminar in: Barcelona

    I first learned about CECJ programs in 2018 when I saw a Barcelona Bar Association announcement about a seminar for Russian-speaking lawyers. I speak Russian (TORFL-III) and work a lot with clients in post-Soviet countries. The event seemed very interesting, and I quickly registered as a participant. Then the organizers offered me the opportunity to speak at the next such seminar, which I gladly accepted. In my opinion, the business networking platform created by CECJ is an excellent way for Spanish lawyers, especially Russian-speaking ones, to promote themselves in international markets and post-Soviet countries in particular. It helps Spanish lawyers understand the market and evaluate the needs of foreign lawyers and their clients. It is a way for us to learn about the mentality of Russian clients, lawyers, and attorneys. Each year, the CECJ Speed Legal Networking event is a full house at the Barcelona Bar Association, so I think my opinion is shared by many Spanish colleagues who are interested in the «Russian market», which includes both Russian-speaking clients who live in Spain or the EU as well as those who live in Russia and have assets or interests in Spain or the EU. On the other hand, international lawyers who come to Barcelona to attend these seminars are able to receive helpful and undistorted information about Spain and Catalonia from Spaniards and Catalans and establish direct contacts. I can say with confidence that such events are mutually beneficial – they connect lawyers from different countries, open new opportunities, and give access to new knowledge, new markets, and new clients. I look forward to many more CECJ projects in Barcelona or elsewhere!

    Participant of CECJ seminars in: Strasbourg, Dubai, Tel Aviv, Frankfurt am Main, Barcelona and Istanbul

    At first, I was hesitant about flying to Istanbul amid all the COVID restrictions. But as a frequent attendee of CECJ events I knew how well organized and responsible they were. After receiving satisfactory answers to all my questions, I made the decision to go, and I am very happy I did. During these three days I had the pleasure of networking with colleagues from Spain, Turkey, Italy, Russia, Latvia, France, Georgia, and the UK. I learned a lot and experienced new interactive features, which CECJ used for the first time at one of its events. These included Zoom simultaneous translation with the ability to select a preferred language without any special equipment, using only your cell phone and headphones. Most of the participants also liked that all the events were held at the hotel, as it allowed saving a lot of time and not having to think about booking a restaurant or not making it to the next lecture from lunch. Everything was organized in such a way that participants could take advantage of every minute to work and learn. Speaking about such projects in general, I would like to note that as a lawyer I am always extremely interested in the experience of my foreign colleagues in the field of human rights, search and seizure of assets, extradition, and the enforcement of foreign judgements and arbitral awards. In Kyiv, my partners and I handle a lot of such cases. And thanks to the CECJ seminars, we are able to establish connections that help us deal with our clients’ most complex issues all over the world.

    Speaker of CECJ seminar in: New York

    Participation in such trainings is beneficial for the attendees because the knowledge and the new skills acquired during the seminar will help them identify optimal strategies for their clients, as well as pre-empt many legal team-related problems, because you will know what experts to engage in a business project or a court case. Since the U.S. – alas – is a notoriously litigious country (yet cases may be settled at the trial stage or when trial is imminent), the basic knowledge of the U.S. legal system, the principles of jurisdiction as well as judicial rules and procedures will always be substantially beneficial to lawyers who see themselves as working in the international arena. In addition, we — U.S. lawyers — find that communication with international colleagues is smoother if they understand how we think and operate within the U.S. legal space. I am confident that the investment in your own professional upgrade and education always pays off, especially if the programme is built in an exciting manner with interventions by foreign judges, prosecutors and lawyers. Exactly such content-rich and informative programmes are offered by the CECJ to international lawyers.

    It has been a pleasure for me, coming from Bangladesh, to be a part of this esteemed CECJ network which connected me to colleagues world wide. The events that I was part of were innovative, visionary and interesting. My trip to Moscow and St Petersbourg in 2016 was an eye opener. We connected with the lawyers in Russia and also among ourselves — the visitors. It was a real time speed networking knowing a sharing about practice, diversity, culture and so forth. The train travel from Moscow and St Petersbourg was exciting as the UEFA Cup football was also on — lots a applause, cheers and in some cases disappointments ! The trip to New York to meet the Bar there was an excellent opportunity created by CECJ. I have been benefited professionally in the aftermath of this trip. I was also privileged to visit Strasbourg — spending a few quality days watching the proceedings of the ECtHR. We were made to feel special. The city is scenic and unique, to add. Another plus for all these events is the quality materials being prepared containing information which even in the electronic era, still has its charm. Hope we do more of this once the Covid —19 crisis is over. All the best for the CECJ.

    УЧАСТНИК СЕМИНАРОВ CECJ В: Miami and Strasbourg

    I am pleased to share my impressions of attending the CECJ seminar in Miami in November 2019. The event was of practical interest to me as in my work I often need to help clients who own businesses or real estate in Florida. So, I needed to identify competent colleagues, including Russian-speaking ones, with a lot of practical experience. At the seminar, I learned everything I needed and acquired a lot of other information about U.S. law and Florida law in particular, which might come in handy in the future.

    During the Speed Legal Networking event, I met with a few dozen US colleagues including business, real estate, criminal, banking, tax and family law lawyers. We also had a chance to visit the Court where we observed the personal injury case of a cruise liner passenger who had fallen from his chair and broken his leg after some cutlery and plates from the restaurant table had been tipped on him during rough seas. We observed arguments by the parties with the staging of this accident for the benefit of the judge so she could visualize the situation and understand what happened. While at the courthouse, we also visited the offices of the bailiffs, discussed their work with them, and were able to observe where defendants are held before they are called to the courtrooms.

    The Miami seminar was very professionally organized and had a clear program. I’d like to thank CECJ for their work and for the fact that the company doesn’t rest on its laurels but grows with each year, expanding its outreach and organizing such events for lawyers all over the world. I look forward to new CECJ events. These trips not only help me grow professionally, but are enjoyable too.

CECJ EVENT FORMATS

WE HAVE CREATED THE MOST EFFECTIVE FORMATS OF LEARNING AND NETWORKING

Every specialist interested in practically-oriented professional upgrade will find a CECJ event format that suits their needs best

The CECJ Seminar format proposes a focussed course on a given country-specific area of law (including tax, criminal, family, commercial, inheritance, migration law, etc). The topics are taught by lawyers practicing in that jurisdiction. The CECJ Seminars offer vast networking opportunities that start during the main programme of lectures and workshops and continue during coffee breaks, at lunches and at a general buffet that may take place in bar associations, chambers or law firms. Seminars are supplemented by the CECJ Speed Legal Networking with the participation of local legal community, attending the court session and meeting with a judge. CECJ seminars are often attended not only by lawyers, but also tax consultants, realtors, bankers from a given country. The CECJ Seminar format is designed for 50-100 attendees, which makes it an ideal option

The CECJ Conference format is an event dedicated to one area of law in an international context. International speakers from 10 to 30 countries (depending on the programme) deliver selected lectures on their jurisdiction, following a harmonised template. Such a structure allows our attendees to learn the most important and relevant aspects within the framework of one topic, to make a comparative legal analysis in an international context, as well as to keep abreast of the latest changes in the legislation of different countries, bilateral agreements, new rules and procedures, and practical country-specific risks. Attendees of the CECJ conference may have to prepare a home assignment for in-group practice sessions. Activities can also include case studies and mock trials that simulate real court cases in an international context; and this helps our attendees to put into practice their new skills at once. The CECJ Conference format envisages 100-200 participants, and offers a comprehensive view on a legal macro-topic from an international perspective. This is an ideal format for those professionals who want to keep abreast of the international situation in their industry and expand their professional network

The CECJ Forum format is a 200-attendee event aimed to foster experience exchange and discussions on specific legal aspects in the operation of various international organizations. The CECJ Thematic Forums are held in The Hague, Strasbourg, Luxembourg, Geneva, Lausanne and Lyon. Depending on the internal rules of the international organization, the CECJ Forum can be held both in the conference halls of the organizations, and at other large venues in the respective cities. The speakers include the staff of international and European organizations with unique knowledge and expertise. Building a dialogue with such high-profile specialists allows our attendees to understand the rules and procedures of these organizations in more detail, to obtain practical information and recommendations from primary sources, and to apply the provisions of international conventions and agreements at the national level in an effective way, thus contributing to the development of the rule of law in general.

The CECJ Congress format is the annual CECJ event with 500+ attendees. It covers a vast variety of jurisdictions and legal issues. At the CECJ Congress, a variety of issues are discussed in a comparative legal vein, so the programme includes expanded panel discussions with moderators and speakers with expertise ranging from law to business and international organizations. This approach makes it possible to determine current trends and ways of solving the most complex issues, and it allows our attendees to feel part of the international legal community.

The event attendees communicate not only during the work programme, but also withing special interest groups (SIGs), round tables, joint dinners and buffets. The CECJ Congress allows numerous legal professionals to stay abreast of the latest legal trends and to establish unique opportunities for new business contacts with colleagues from all over the world at the same time and place
