WLG Happenings

2020 Fall eConference


In collaboration with our member firms, World Law Group is hosting a series of educational and networking sessions from October 26 - November 13 as part of our Fall eConference. We are pleased to bring content that is unique and designed to meet our members' interests. Registration opening soon.

Call for Speakers

During the eConference, the HR Law Group will join IP/IT and Litigation, Arbitration and Dispute Resolution to present "Protecting Trade Secrets When Facing Lawsuits or Alternative Dispute Resolution Procedures." We're looking for a panelist or two from the HR Law Group. Are you interested? If so, please email Hanna by September 29th. (If we receive more interest than the number of speakers we need, we'll have other opportunities in the future!)

Updating the Global Guide to Non-Competition Agreements

At the end of 2018, the Human Resources Law Group published the Global Guide to Non-Competition Agreements with more than 50 member firms participating. We’re updating the guide to include additional jurisdictions and to give current contributors the opportunity to address any updates since 2018. Click here to download the guide. If your firm has not contributed for your WLG jurisdiction, please use this the form below to contribute. If you’ve contributed but need to update, please reach out to Hanna to receive your individual contribution to update. All new and updated contributions are due to Hanna by November 15.
