On 8 February 2023, the Canada EU Trade and Investment Association (CEUTIA) is hosting the first European Union Law for Canadian Legal Practitioners Conference.

As a global regulatory power, the EU creates rules and standards that affect businesses around the world, including Canada. From rules relating to data protection to legislation affecting supply chain due diligence, EU laws are increasingly becoming the gold standard internationally.

Yet, despite its importance, EU law often remains a mystery for Canadian lawyers and legal practitioners.

This virtual summit is specifically aimed at providing Canadian legal practitioners with insight into key and emerging EU legal and regulatory developments affecting Canadian businesses, including:

  • EU rules on data regulation (the GDPR, AI regulation, the Digital Markets Act, the Digital Services Act)
  • EU rules on responsible business conduct (EU proposals on supply chain due Diligence and a forced labour ban, etc.)
  • EU sanction rules
  • EU’s proposed Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism and other EU defensive trade measures

These topics - and how they are relevant for Canadian lawyers and their clients - will be discussed by expert panels moderated by Canadian legal experts.

The event will also feature a keynote address by Dr. Anu Bradford of Columbia University and author of the influential book “The Brussels Effect: How the European Union Rules the World”.

The Summit is being co-sponsored by the law firms Fasken Martineau, McCarthy Tétrault and Camilleri Law.

The event is free to particpate.
