Lex Anglo-Brasil is a bilateral association for lawyers with an interest in strengthening ties between Brazil and the UK. We launched with the support of the Law Society and Bar Council of England and Wales. We will continue to work with them in future activities.
The initiative has brought together a variety of solicitors, barristers and Brazilian lawyers. It also seeks the involvement of academics, students and in-house counsel. It is formed by the officers and a managing committee, which supervises the sub-committees. There are sub-committees for Brazil, Events and Education and ad hoc sub-committees can be formed and led by members for specific projects. We invite the proposal of new committees and events from members and interested parties.
For your membership fee you will have access to a network of lawyers acting in cross-border matters, referral of instructions, information and materials that may assist you in your practice, exclusive access to unique events in matters concerning your practice, CPD points, and an opportunity to attend professional and social events.
We also work together with universities and academic institutions to promote legal education and knowledge and place students and lawyers together with new and established practitioners. Lex has been formed, partly, as a consequence of Memorandum of Understandings between the Federal Counsel of the Brazilian Bar Association (OAB), the General Council of the Bar and the Law Society of England and Wales.
Lex Anglo-Brasil is created by lawyers for the benefit of lawyers, students, academics, policy makers, commerce and individuals.
