CALL FOR ARTICLES SPRING 2017 EDITION OF NOTICIAS
You are cordially invited to contribute an article for the Spring 2017 Edition of Noticias.

The theme for the 2017 CCC is "Gateway To Your Global Network," and the Spring Edition of Noticias will highlight the international practice and aspects of the practice of law. Cross-border law practice is growing to serve the increasingly global business of its client.  Expansion takes several forms, including the physical – law firms opening offices in other countries to serve new and existing clients as well as the virtual expansion that supports the economics of cross boarder activity by enabling the practice of law apart from a physical presence.  Issues we face include barriers to practicing abroad, ethical considerations, and many others. We hope that the articles submitted for consideration will help our members identify and strengthen global network.
