In October 2019, the CLA International Law Section signed a Friendship Agreement with the Czech Bar Association at our joint CLA/Czech Bar Multi-Bar International Law Conference in Prague. The conference was a great success, and the ILS is very enthusiastic about our continuing cooperation with the Czech Bar Association, as well as the opportunities this cooperation will create for our respective members in terms of enhanced understanding of international law, and networking with foreign attorneys. The Agreement was signed by outgoing CLA ILS Chairs Michael Newman and Alexandra Darraby, and incoming CLA ILS Chair Josh Surowitz. On the Czech Bar Association side, the agreement was signed by Vice President Robert Nemec, International Law Chair Antonin Mokry, and Head of International, Eva Indruchova. In addition to receiving cutting edge international legal continuing education, attendees enjoyed fine restaurants and authentic beer halls with our local hosts, receptions at Prague law firms, boat cruises, architectural tours, and visits to the Czech High Court and City Hall.
