This year I will participate to the Multi-stakeholder Forum organised by the TACD. The forum will bring together participants representing civil society, government, legislators and business on both sides of the Atlantic to discuss issues of importance to consumers related to the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
One of the most remarkable developments in the field of law over the past decade has been the rapid growth of pro bono in Europe and, increasingly, around the globe. The provision of legal services to those who cannot afford a lawyer helps expand access to justice and supports the humanitarian missions of NGOs.
I have been meaning to blog for the past few months about the ongoing negotiations aimed at concluding the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). After an initial post in reaction to the announcement of the launch of the TTIP negotiations, I deliberately decided to abstain from providing any further comment during the first months of negotiations.
