Welcome from Gordon Nardell QC, Circuit Leader
The European Circuit is for all advocates delivering and developing our cross-border practices.
The Circuit brings together barristers practising European law (in its broadest sense) and barristers working in Europe, as well as European and international lawyers with a connection to the UK. Members also include UK solicitors and in-house counsel dealing with EU law.
At our regular events we debate law and practice in the ever-changing international context. Hosted in major European cities, these events offer the perfect opportunity for regional and international advocates to come together.
