ERASING BORDERS

THE ONLINE CONFERENCE ON TRANSNATIONAL BUSINESS LAW 2020
About the Conference
Narxoz's School of Law and Public Policy is proud to host its second annual international conference on transnational business law 'ERASING BORDERS'. Our conference will bring together the most distinguished scholars and professionals from all over the world to discuss contemporary transnational business challenges. This year's conference will focus on the latest developments in IT and cyber law, e-commerce, cross border transactions, tax law, and other trending conversations in law and business.

Taking into account the current Covid-19 restrictions, we are pleased to announce that this year's conference will be online. Simultaneous Russian and English translations will be available to all participants.

We invite business and legal professionals and members of academia to join us on our quest to erase borders!

Participation is free of charge.
