Our friends from the Perth USAsia Centre has kindly offered 5 complimentary spots to an exclusive roundtable event with Mr Sundaresh Menon, Chief Justice of Singapore, on Thursday 28 July 2022. This is a fantastic opportunity for any legal professionals.
Recent developments have raised urgent questions over the future of globalisation and the rules-based international order. The law has underpinned globalisation and the international system – what part might it play in sustaining bonds in an increasingly divided world?
Drawing on Singapore's experience, Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon will speak on the significant role that judicial diplomacy and international judicial engagements play in strengthening the transnational system of justice and advancing the rule of law.
The discussion will be held under Chatham House Rule.
