    Program Description

    During the summer of 2014, we are presenting a series of 4 programs, each 60 minutes in length, covering the rules related to the practice of law (particularly in relation to non-local lawyers) in the following four countries:

    Argentina

    Chile

    Colombia

    Peru

    Part 3: Colombia

    Colombia is the third biggest economy in Latin America. Except for a short dip in 2012, the country has been growing at an average rate of 1 percent on quarter over quarter basis, mostly due to a rise in exports of commodities. Colombia has been a major exporter of oil, coal and coffee. Another area of growth for legal advice is the country's needs to improve its infrastructure.

    The call will be held on Tuesday, July 22, at 10:00 am EDT and will last 60 minutes.

    During the call, we will explore the following issues:

    1) What rules apply to the practice of law in each country, particularly for foreign lawyers?

    2) What practical steps should a foreign lawyer take to avoid breaching any professional rules?

    3) What has the experience been of foreign lawyers attempting to provide legal services in these countries?
