Lithuania's Legal System: Trends and Perspectives

July 24-28, 2006 Conference

Updated: May 31, 2006

Dear Colleagues,

LABAS, together the Center for Public Affairs at Elon University in North Carolina, USA, and the Lithuanian Lawyers Association (Lietuvos teisininku draugija, or LTD), will present a legal professionals conference preliminarily entitled "Lithuania's Legal System: Trends and Perspectives" to take place July 24-28, 2006 in Vilnius, Lithuania. Click here for the program topics and speakers.

There will be presentations from the Lithuanian point of view on Lithuania's institutional changes in the rule of law, including in its legislative, judicial and political systems, as well as Lithuania's future needs in these areas. Conference updates will follow to those who register, and will be posted on our website. We urge you to register as soon as possible so that we can plan appropriately. 

Location. The first two full days of the conference (Tuesday July 25 and Wednesday July 26) will be held in The American Center of the U.S. Embassy located in Old Town, at Pranciskonu 3/6. The Center can accommodate up to 200 people and has modern facilities for translation services and teleconferencing. The City Park Hotel <www.citypark.lt> will continue to serve as local headquarters for our programs that week. 

Registration. Conference registration remains open at $200 per person. This fee will include meeting materials, translation services, and lunch on July 25 and 26. $150 of the registration fee is non-refundable to help will defray costs for the conference. In addition, there is a $50 per travel companion fee for those who would like to attend the formal program on July 25 and 26 at The American Center. This travel companion fee is not refundable.

Several hotel rooms are still available of those set aside for conference attendees at the City Park Hotel on a first-come, first served basis.
