WHAT DOES UK TRADE LOOK LIKE POST BREXIT?
Dr Lorand Bartels is a Reader in International Law in the Faculty of Law and a Fellow of Trinity Hall at the University of Cambridge, where he teaches international law, WTO law and EU law.
Dr Bartels is a member of the ILA's study group on free trade agreements and helped to establish the Society of International Economic Law. He is a general editor of the Cambridge International Trade and Economic Law Series (CUP), an associate editor of the Journal of World Trade and an editorial board member of several journals, including the Journal of International Economic Law, the Journal of International Dispute Settlement and Legal Issues of Economic Integration.
Following the Brexit referendum, he joined Linklaters as Senior Counsel, and has since been advising the UK Government and other clients on trade law issues arising out of Brexit.
In 2016-7, he was a Specialist Advisor to the UK House of Commons Select Committee on International Trade, and he has also on numerous occasions appeared before parliamentary select committees in the UK, Belgium, as well as the European Parliament.
Meet other business professionals in a friendly environment
12:00 The Mikado, our unique networking workshop, opens the afternoon. It offers a mix of one to one discussions, tips, and a chance to ask for help, advice or specific introductions.
12:45 At our pre-lunch Drinks Reception, 30 minutes of open networking offer the chance to meet or catch up with more exceptional people.
13:15 A superb 3 course meal with wine is served. With planned seating and small tables, there are more opportunities for introductions and discussion.
14:30 (appox) We have first-rate speakers who share their knowledge with us. The talks are like mini master classes and you can always take away a little nugget of information.
We meet at the beautiful Dorchester Hotel on Park Lane in London.
With its elegant rooms, delicious food, and central location, it provides the ideal environment for a relaxed meeting.
The service is impecable, and the ambience is relaxed.
We have a terrific variety of speakers from the world around us, and not just business. In the past year alone, we've had someone from a think tank, a foremost economist, an artist, restaurateurs, an aquaculturalist, and a scientist who grows marijuana for a living.
Here is who we have lined up for the coming months:
October 11 - Dr Lorand Bartels on WTO
November 8 - Andy Ogden, English Fine Cottons
December 13 - Gary Smith, The Medaille Trust
