LegalUK’s purpose is to promote English law as an international platform, as the governing law of choice for international business and as a national asset.
LegalUK was established in 2017 by the Lord Chief Justice, as a group drawn from major stakeholders across the legal sector including solicitors, barristers, arbitrators and industry bodies. The group meets regularly and is committed to the promotion of English law and dispute resolution and its recognition as a significant platform for the wider economy.
English law facilitates global commerce and is of significant value to the UK. LegalUK’s core aims are, in collaboration with stakeholders: to promote English law as a brand, both nationally and internationally; to increase the use of English law internationally; and to enhance the UK’s position as a leading global centre for dispute resolution.
