If you know of others, for example, colleagues or those working in house with clients, who may be interested in joining the webinar series, just let us know and we can send an invitation to them too.

The format is intended to be relaxed and informal, with participants invited to participate from home in a discussion between the Editors and relevant Contributors.

We hope the series will present an opportunity for practitioners both to consolidate their knowledge of the core areas of DIFC law and to consider recent developments and, if possible, the general direction of travel.

To join the webinar series, please email our marketing team here. An electronic invitation for each of the webinars will be sent in advance.

We look forward to connecting soon.
