St Philips Chambers welcome Chinese Delegation

Chine Delegation Chris Owen

Birmingham Law Society (BLS) recently welcomed a delegation of senior representatives from the Chinese Ministry of Justice.

Chris Owen, CEO of St Philips Chambers (and Vice President of Birmingham Law Society) and John Randall QC, head of St Philips Commercial Group also spoke at the event.

The 25-strong party was keen to learn about BLS, the legal system in the UK including solicitors and barristers, the various types of roles within the legal system and legal education.

BLS ran a series of seminars for their distinguished visitors over a two day trip. The differences between the Chinese legal system and the English legal system were discussed.

The visit was supported by a number of organisations, who hosted the event, as well as Birmingham City Council's Legal and Democratic department and Blakemores/Lawyers2You who each hosted an interesting day for the visitors.
