International Committee Report

Tony McDaid

Committee Chair

The role of the Birmingham Law Society’s International Committee is to promote the BLS at home and globally. It is our aim to encourage relevant overseas clients, both lay and professional, to instruct members of the BLS’ legal community.

Over the last year, our primary focus has been to prepare for our BLS and Commonwealth lawyers’ legal conference entitled “Race to the Commonwealth and Beyond” on 21/22 July 2022. With the continued threat of new Covid variants and the ripple effect in many parts of the world with regards to business travel post the earlier outbreaks, it has been challenging to say the least. Nevertheless, in true BLS spirit, we are pressing on and confident of putting on an event to showcase the talent we have in Birmingham. We hope to forge relationships for the city’s lawyers for generations to come.
