International leaders in law will convene at the Sheraton Hotel Doha, Qatar on Saturday 11th November and Sunday 12th November 2017 for the 3rd Qatar Law Forum.
The Forum, supported by the Government of Qatar, is an exclusive and unique event at which the world’s most eminent legal experts gather to debate the nature and practicalities of the foundational principle that is the rule of law.
The 3rd Qatar Law Forum will focus specifically on Goal 16 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:
Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions.
At this time of world-wide uncertainty and insecurity, affirmation of the values underlying Goal 16 is critical. The Qatar Law Forum 2017 will address how best the Forum and participants can make a positive contribution to this internationally-agreed goal.
