For Russian Law Students

Since 2011 PILnet, along with law firms in Moscow, has hosted Russian law students at a multi-day training to learn about professional responsibility and ethics in the global legal market. The event, held every fall, involves specialized sessions by over 20 guest lecturers from Russian and international academia, business, and the legal profession.
