About the Conference

Los Angeles has become a crossroads for international legal work that reflects the diverse and robust nature of the California economy.  Inbound and outbound investment, media and entertainment, technology and life sciences, financial services, to name a few, drive cross border work with Asia, Mexico and LATAM, Canada and Europe. 

This Summer Conference will bring a world class international law conference to Los Angeles; identify critical emerging issues; highlight the international legal work being done in Los Angeles; and introduce the firms doing that work to the members of the ABA International Law Section and larger international legal community.
