International Family Law Conference

27-28 April 2023

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Proudly supported by Abu Dhabi Convention Bureau

We extend a warm welcome to family lawyers wishing to attend our conference in Abu Dhabi on Thursday 27 and Friday 28 April 2023.

The 1.5-day event will cover a range of international family law topics, and is aimed at family lawyers from all jurisdictions around the world. The conference will consist of lectures and panel sessions from over 20 top family law solicitors, barristers and Judges. The learning sessions will be interspersed with coffee breaks, lunches, drinks and dinners to enable delegates to meet each other and forge professional relationships and friendships.

You will hear about:

  • the new family laws and practices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi which is essential learning for all practitioners advising on cases involving the Middle East
  • family arbitration schemes around the world, with a particular focus on the new Abu Dhabi family arbitration scheme for expats; and
  • asset protection schemes in the Middle East, mediation, prenuptial agreements, enforcement and jurisdiction issues

The conference will have a strong practical approach. Our aim is to give delegates practical guidance and understanding that will assist their day-to-day practices, regardless of the jurisdiction that they practise in.

The conference will culminate in an optional afternoon and evening trip to a tented camp in the Abu Dhabi desert for dune boarding, camel riding and dinner.

Abu Dhabi is a wonderful place to visit in April, when the weather is perfectly warm and pleasant. The conference is a great opportunity to visit the Louvre Museum of Art and the famous Abu Dhabi mosque, both a short taxi ride from the conference hotel. Abu Dhabi is an hour from Dubai by car (without a border), or a short flight from Oman, for those wanting to extend their trip.

Please do reach out to for any recommendations.
