Last week, a one-off three-day event entitled The Global Law Summit (GLS) was held in London, UK, to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the sealing of Magna Carta.
The Global Law Summit brought together 2,000 leaders in law, business, government and academia from all around the world.
As part of the Language Show Live, to be held at Olympia, London, UK, from 18-20 October 2013, there are a number of free seminars that might be of interest to you.
There will of course be a number of exhibitors to visit too, including professional bodies, translation companies, publishers, the European Commission, educational institutions…
Here is the second part of my report from the recent Qualetra conference held in London (see here for part 1).
The Translating Division of the Chartered Institute of Linguists is organizing a Legal Translation Conference on Friday 28 June 2013 in London, UK, from 10.00 to 16.15 (registration from 09.30).
