Law for business: Civil or common?
The purpose of this seminar is to highlight differences and similarities between civil law and common law, by comparing the history, culture, concepts and participants in the two systems.
The legal world is divided into two camps: the “common law” and the “civil law”. About one third of humanity lives in countries where the legal system has its roots in English common law, with the rest (including Sweden) being more or less “civilian”. Business people and their lawyers from the civil law world are therefore regularly exposed to contracts, legal concepts and lawyers from the common law systems (in particular from England and the US).Sometimes concepts and contractual provisions which originate from common law even find their way into Swedish agreements, without anybody considering whether they work in a Swedish context. All of this can make legal documents (never the most easy reading to begin with) seem yet more impenetrable.

“What is all the fuss about GDPR?”
Foyen Advokatfirma KB
GDPR, the new EU privacy legislation (General Data Protection Regulation) which will apply from May 25 is mentioned everywhere. Why is that – and why is it important for you?
During this seminar, we will cover the basics of the new rules and what you need to do to be GDPR compliant. Who are the different parties affected and which are their respective obligations and rights? You will also receive some tips on an effective process to ensure compliance – where do you start and where do you go from there? Finally, you will understand why GDPR affects everyone of us and why that is – actually – a good thing. GDPR is not only legislation which has put companies in a frenzy over compliance issues to be handled before May 25. It is also a legislation which highlights the importance of digital integrity and security. Personal data is an extremely valuable commodity, and this legislation will have effect on existing and new business ventures one way or the other. Personal data also has an effect on politics as seen in the US presidential election – can GDPR even help save the concept of democracy?
Date: 13 February 2018
Breakfast will be served from 7.30 and the seminar will begin at 7.45.
Venue: Foyen Advokatfirma KB, Regeringsgatan 52, Stockholm
