- Hotel information
The conference sessions will be taking part at the Conselho Geral da Ordem dos Advogados, Largo São Domingos 14, 1150-062 Lisbon (location here), which is in easy reach from many of Lisbon’s hotels.
This is a non-residential conference and we invite delegates to make their own arrangements for overnight accommodation. Unfortunately we have not been able to arrange a special rate at a specific hotel, as we have done on occasion in the past.
The following hotels (among others) are convenient for the conference venue, but we have no arrangement with them:
As in past years, we will be covering a wide array of topics that are of interest to practitioners interested in cross-border issues:
Thursday 22 September
Friday 23 September
The conference will also include the Annual Gala Dinner at the Pousada de Lisboa, lunch at the Museu da Cerveja (“the Beer Museum”) and a drinks reception, as well as the Circuit AGM. We also hope to have a court visit on the Friday morning (details to be confirmed).
