-Conference 'Practising Family Law in Europe' (Brussels, 11-12 Dec 2008). Cross-border legal relationships and their consequences (e.g. divorce, custody decisions and their enforcement abroad, maintenance) confront family lawyers with complex legal problems. New legal acts at the European and international level affect their daily work. Legal practitioners are therefore required to deal ever more with legal questions arising from cross-border family and parental responsibility cases.
The CCBE (Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe) is organising, in partnership with ERA (Academy of European Law), an important meeting on the practice of European family law with the following format:
  • Roundtables on Thursday afternoon to provide thorough information on European texts and proposals;
  • Workshops and discussions on Friday in order to consider practi-cal cases, to debate and to ex-change know-how.
This event is organised by family law professionals for family law professionals.
