For your information:

The SPBILF, hosted by the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation, has been held annually since 2011. Support for the SPBILF comes from the President of the Russian Federation.

The Forum’s primary mission is to promote ideas related to modernising the law amidst global changes.

As preparation gains momentum for the VII SPBILF, we have put a series of conferences in the pipeline to address a number of issues of urgent concern for legal services professionals and for the business community. The agenda addressed by the conferences, and the outputs of the debates will lay down a solid foundation, upon which the planners will build as they design roundtables for the Forum’s executive programme in 2017.

In 2016 more than 3,700 participants from 77 countries including 71 official delegations attended 70 business events of the Forum.

The Business Programme of SPBILF 2016 featured over 70 roundtables, conferences and general debates. The Forum took place amid the magnificent historic interiors of the General Staff Building in Palace Square, right in the heart of St Petersburg.

A special live feed made it possible to follow the events of the Forum anywhere in the world. More than 77,000 online viewers in 58 countries joined the SPBILF physical participants in 2016.

The Forum provided a platform for presenting the LF Academy educational project – a resource created under the auspices of the SPBILF for professionals who value their time and are interested in acquiring a unique insight while continuing their current work.

2016’s new project is Legal Forum Live, a series of live on-line broadcasts of a number of the Forum’s sessions in more than 30 cities in Russia and the CIS. See Legal Forum 2017 video records.
