Minsk Legal Forum (MLF) is an entirely new conference format. It is more than a professional discussion; it is an informal meeting for lawyers from all over Europe. It is a platform designed for lively interaction free from scientific monologues.

We are proud of being one of the first to offer such a type of the event. It is already the FORTH time we support the idea of informal “get-togethers” for best attorneys, lawyers and partners of the largest law firms of neighboring countries. Last year we managed:

  • to gather an excellent company of more than 200 representatives of Belarus, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, the Baltic States and Western Europe;
  • to hold a legal battle and a high-profile award ceremony in honor of the winners of the contest Best Law Firm Website 2017;
  • to stroll around old-new Minsk and enjoy its history!

What to expect in 2018?

Only more. Only better and even more non-standard.

There is just one thing that remains practically unchanged – the structure. The first day is for chilling out and getting to know each other. The second day is the main business day of the Forum with speeches and open-space discussions. The third is dedicated to the entertainment program (so far kept by the organizers in secret).


MLF 2018: Be in game! Play brighter!

The basic concept of this year’s forum is directly connected to such a concept as “game”, in all its splendor in relation to legal business.

New rules of the game in the world legal markets dictate us stricter requirements to conduct business in the conditions of constantly growing competition, including price competition. At the same time, competition is not always even between colleagues – law firms, but with robotic programs, applications, neural networks and other fashionable information and legal IT products, including artificial intelligence elements. All this is both frightening and inspiring. And this game is just beginning, and we are all the most active participants in it now. Especially those who will take part in the profile session of MLF on this topic.

Equally important aspect in building a successful legal business are partnership relations, their various kinds, formats, problems and prospects. This will also be the subject of a separate session at the forum, which, as always happens at MLF, should amaze participants with its frankness and practicality.

At the request of the workers, this year the “playing house” session will be presented for the first time, where a growing generation of lawyers from law firms of different countries will take part in. These fresh minds will communicate partners and managers of law firms their views on legal business from behind of partnership agreements – as honestly as possible.

This and much more – during three days of open, useful and friendly dialogue in the atmosphere of hospitable Minsk autumn. See you, friends!
