Glasgow to host Commonwealth Law Conference in 2015

One of the most important conferences on the international legal calendar is to come to Scotland with the Commonwealth Lawyers’ Association (CLA) announcing Glasgow as the host city for the 19th Commonwealth Law Conference (CLC) in 2015.
 
The announcement of CLC 2015, for which 1,000 delegates are expected, came following a successful bid put together by the Law Society of Scotland, Glasgow City Marketing Bureau (GCMB) and the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC).
 
The biennial conference will take place this year, 14-18 April in Cape Town, South Africa, and the Law Society of Scotland is encouraging Scottish legal professionals to attend.
 
The 2015 conference will be held in Glasgow at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre and is expected to boost the local economy by £2m.
 
Councillor Gordon Matheson, Leader of Glasgow City Council and Chair of Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, said: “I am delighted that the Commonwealth Law Conference is coming to Glasgow in 2015. Not only will it mark the return of this prestigious meeting to Europe and the UK for the first time in a decade, it will also greatly contribute to the legacy derived from the city’s hosting of the Commonwealth Games the previous year.”
 
President of the Commonwealth Lawyers’ Association, Boma Ozobia, said: “The Commonwealth Lawyers Association is delighted to have the opportunity to bring our 19th Commonwealth Law Conference to the city of Glasgow in 2015 and we look forward to working with the Law Society of Scotland.”
 
Jamie Millar, a former President of the Law Society of Scotland and the CLA Council member representing Scotland, said: “I want to thank the CLA for choosing Glasgow as its host city for the 2015 conference. I am also grateful to the many partners, political, legal and business, who supported this joint bid. Their support helped to ensure its success.
 
“I know Scotland will be an exciting and fascinating place for CLA members to visit.”
