SNEAK PEEK AT OUR CONFERENCE LAST YEAR
A great program with excellent speakers, knowledgeable and well respected in the legal community.
I had a very good experience. Thought the speakers were insightful.
This conference was extremely well organized. The focus on the various aspects and implications of the Vavilov decision was fascinating. The speakers were all excellent and the manner in which potentially differing views were presented was very useful.
I have to admit that I was impressed with the overall experience. Given the current context imposed by COVID-19, I think the team did a very good job. I will gladly participate to another Canadian Institute conference. Very well organized!
This is the best conference I have attended in decades – the Vavilov content comes at a perfect timing in my job and I have learned so much.
A very engaging conference with useful analysis on recent and relevant topics.
