What this session will cover

After careful consideration the LIDW organising committee has decided not to proceed with the Russia session during this year’s LIDW. Although there are many complex and important legal questions for lawyers to discuss and consider, these pale into insignificance while a war is going on and people are suffering and dying. LIDW wishes and hopes for peace as soon as possible, and for the commencement of the long journey of healing and rebuilding that will follow. At times of such conflict it is vital that we strive to uphold the important principles that are fundamental to modern progressive societies such as the rule of law and access to justice.
