Welcome to the World Legal Summit Mexico City! 

Date: August 1, 2019

Time: 8:00am-11:30am

This event will take place during business hours in Mexico City, but linked to similar events around the world.

This first part of the WLS is designed to bring disparate jurisdictions together in collaboration around building a better understanding of what is happening with technology regulation and governance world-wide. Mexico City will bring a unique viewpoint to the discussion, focusing on the legislative and governance structures in the city and more broadly across Mexico.

While there will be panels on each topic, the goal will be to facilitate local conversations that will link with the broader international conversation, identifying common themes and regional differences. The result will be a report that explores existing legal frameworks and law reform ideas for emerging technologies around the world. Participants are welcome to join the session of highest interest.

Collaborate with us and the global community to further the understanding of legislative andregulatory frameworks. These frameworks are enabling the sustainable development of emerging technologies and your input is important!

The morning will focus on three themes simultaneously.

7:30-8:00am Registration.
