Dear colleagues, dear friends,
After our adventures in Macau, the UIA is
returning to Europe in 2014 for a magical
congress in Florence.
And when our work is done each day, we will walk out into the
breathtaking autumn beauty of the city on the Arno - with social
events in historic venues of great beauty, and excursions to the
Tuscan countryside for attendees and accompanying persons alike.
This is a congress for the whole family - there are surprises to delight
everyone, no matter what their age or nationality.
If there is one city in Europe that everyone in
the world loves to visit, it is Florence. Artistic
masterpieces, architectural wonders and
living history are around every corner, and the
Florentine art de vivre is legendary. We will take full advantage of
this magnificent setting for both our scientific and social activities.
And as always, there is the special atmosphere of the UIA - a convivial
place to meet old friends and make new ones, exchange ideas and
focus on the compelling issues of our profession.
Our single main theme has been chosen with Florence in mind:
“Protecting Creativity: The Law of Art, Fashion and Design.” Experts
in all three - both lawyers and business leaders - will join together
to discuss the myriad of legal issues that arise in these closely-related
fields that have made Italy and particularly Florence world-famous.
We have done our best to schedule the main theme to reduce
competition with related commission and other programmes, so that
everyone can participate both in the compelling main theme and the
regular sessions of our commissions.
The UIA welcomes everyone - from sole practitioners to members
of large firms, no matter what their language, nationality or legal
tradition. Florence will be a multilingual and multicultural festival of
the law - a rare chance for all of us to celebrate our profession while
learning from each other.
I look forward to welcoming you to Florence.
Stephen L. Dreyfuss
UIA President
Welcome messages
Dear colleagues, dear friends,
After Milan in 1958 and Turin in 2001, this
congress is the UIA’s return to Italy, and this
time to Florence, city of art and culture par
excellence, and much more…
The Grand Duchy of Tuscany is equally famous for having been the
first government in the world to have abolished the death penalty,
on November 30, 1786.
Florence is an open-air museum. Michelangelo’s David will welcome
us to our gala dinner in the “Salone dei Cinquecento” of the Palazzo
Vecchio. The Uffizi Gallery will reveal its Renaissance treasures to
you.
Ideally located in the heart of Italy, Florence
is easily accessible wherever you come from.
Should you wish to blend the useful and the
pleasurable, and embark on the “Italian Journey”, so dear to the 19th
century romantic authors, you may want to know that Rome is only
one hour away by train, Bologna a half-hour, and Turin, Milan and
Venice are quite close as well.
Thanks to the art and culture of Lorenzo the Magnificent, Florence
was the driving force not only of Italy but also of Europe. Today, a
journey to the Renaissance can bring us optimism and hope for a
peaceful and prosperous future for all peoples.
The surroundings of Florence hide unique places like Chianti, whose
reputation is built not only on its excellent wine — which can be
tasted in historical and aristocratic cellars — but also on the Tuscan
countryside, so often depicted by the Macchiaioli School of painting.
Siena, well known for its Palio, and the Tyrrhenian Sea are also nearby and worth visiting.
In November 1966, many young people came to Florence from all
over the world to save the city’s artistic and cultural patrimony from
the floods. I was one of them, and I hope this congress is the occasion
for me to meet some old colleagues, who were students then and
participated in this gesture of solidarity.
Welcome to Italy. Welcome to Florence.

Fabio MORETTI (Moretti Burgio) Milan, Italy
Protecting Creativity: The Law of Art, Fashion and Design
The protection of creativity, in all of its expressions, is one of the primary functions of national and transnational law in our
globalised world. Our main theme will focus on the ways in which the laws of various countries interact to protect creative
expression in the closely-related fields of art, fashion and design.
Our session will begin with the efforts by countries and individuals throughout the world to reclaim their priceless cultural
heritage, lost as a result of wartime or other looting, including the numerous and successful claims now regularly asserted to
reclaim stolen antiquities and Holocaust-looted art.
This will lead us to consider how cultural heritage - whether collective or individual - is protected when it is expressed in
contemporary art, fashion and design, leading us to examine the protection of the creative process itself. We will review the
different types of works that can be protected by intellectual property laws, including works of artistic craftsmanship and
industrially exploited and functional designs.
Since fashion designers are often artists themselves, and fashion brands are increasingly sponsors and collectors of contemporary
art, we will then focus on fashion as the uniquely interrelated expression of design and artistic creativity, and examine how the
diverse legal theories and remedies discussed earlier find expression in contemporary fashion law.

 International Bar Leaders' Senate
Should Lawyers be Entitled to a Monopoly on Legal Services ?
Firstly, the liberalisation of legal services is an inevitable trend, both in common law jurisdictions and in Europe.
The most visible demonstration are:
- The work of the CCBE’s International Legal Services Committee on the creation of the status of Foreign Legal Practitioner;
- The authorisation that has just been given by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) in the United Kingdom for the Direct
Line insurance group to provide legal services, under certain conditions.
Secondly, this liberalisation generates heightened a growing competition, with consequences that are difficult to control and
that negatively impact the quality and risk-sensitive basis of legal services provided to consumers.
In this respect,
- Although publishers of legal opinions design document-based websites that have genuine scientific value, the spectacular
development of new technologies has made it possible for the number of websites run by unlicensed service providers to
increase exponentially. These service providers, some of whom operate illegally, provide unguaranteed, scarcely reliable legal
services to users who are looking for law-related information.
- Our profession needs to innovate and, in order to remain competitive, it needs to adapt to a different attorney-client
relationship? Does it need to create customised, professional websites? Have an international specialised network? Develop a
more focussed and aggressive advertising?
Without abandoning our values and while supporting this liberalisation of legal services, can we adopt the same stance as
Professor Christophe Jamin and ask: how we can stand up to "the mass de-professionalisation of legal services"? Or, is it rather
to change the manner of practising?

The usage of new technologies will transform the manner in which legal services are offered and disseminated by
all. Could online legal information become an illegal exercise of the law? Will it be necessary to move towards new
structures of practice?
William C. HUBBARD, President of the American Bar Association, United States
Winnie TAM, Member of the Bar Council of the Hong Kong Bar Association, Hong Kong
How should the legal profession adapt to competition?
Creation and development of online international professional networks, consultation sites and litigation

Private International Law
Session held under the patronage of the Italian Ministry for Economic Development.
Social Media Mobility and Fixed Laws: Applying Private International Law to a Changing World
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and countless other social media networks are reinventing the way we interact on a personal and business level, the way companies promote products and challenge competitors, as well as
how contracts are performed. The latest mobile technology makes social media so readily available that traditional
presumptions may no longer apply.
Worldwide access to the Internet creates jurisdictional problems and choice of law issues, and gives a claimant a
myriad of “forum shopping” opportunities.
We will take a 360-degree look at the current state of private international law with regard to social media, crossborder internet transactions and internet tort cases, and will consider whether traditional private international law
principles and rules are adequate in the borderless internet context.

Proving a Case Before an Arbitral Tribunal: Towards a Common Practice in International Arbitration for
Documentary and Witness Evidence
Sourcing and presenting evidence are areas where common law and civil law traditions diverge, but common
practices have evolved in international arbitration. Two panels will cover critical issues related to documentary
evidence, production of documents, witness evidence, preparation of witnesses and the presentation of oral
evidence in international arbitration proceedings.
Speakers and participants will discuss emerging trends, problems faced in practice, as well as the ethical issues that
arise and possible means of addressing improper conduct.
Should Information Last Forever? Google, Free Speech and the Right to be Forgotten
On May 13, 2014, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) issued a landmark decision against the search engine Google
that enforced the so-called right to be forgotten. The decision heightened the rift between common law and civil
law approaches towards balancing privacy rights on the one hand and freedom of expression rights on the other.
Some view the decision as Orwellian; others as reaffirming the dignity of the individual. The panel will discuss these
and other concepts and applications deriving from the decision.

Advanced Medical Technology and Its Cost
Advanced medical technology such as organ transplantation, cardiac pacemaker implantation, artificial reproductive
medicine, molecularly-targeted drugs are costly. Many patients abandon the therapy because of the cost burden. If
these costs were compensated by insurance (including public insurance), it would be a great help to the patient and
would promote the use of advanced medical technology.This topic is also connected to the issue of medical tourism.

professional duties and functions, whether in civil, criminal or commercial matters. Specifically, we will discuss the
intimidation and sentencing of lawyers and human rights defenders, searches of their offices and wiretapping of
their telephone calls and conversations. A lawyer’s necessary right to freedom of expression, within and without the
courtroom, in the defence of clients, will also be addressed. We will share dossiers and situations where the UIA has
intervened on behalf of colleagues who have been persecuted simply for practising their profession. We will also
discuss the procedural stage at which lawyer's intervention is possible, including a recent trend - in countries such
as France, Belgium, Monaco and Russia - that allows defendants to be represented by counsel in the investigation
or preliminary stage of a legal proceeding.The session will be interactive.

Protecting Creativity in Art, Fashion and Design (Main Theme follow-up session)

fashion and design. Topics will include the recovery of lost and stolen cultural property, the protection of works of
artistic craftsmanship and industrially exploited and functional designs, and related issues raised by contemporary
fashion law will all be examined, both by individual presentations as well as panel discussions.

Theme
1- Single Judge, Multi-Judge Tribunal or Jury Trial
Lawyers from countries all over the world will tell us about their experiences, the advantages and disadvantages
of panels operating as a single judge, as a tribunal or with the help of juries. If you could choose, which would you
pick? A single judge, a multi-judge tribunal or a jury?
2- The Role of Laymen
What is the role of laymen (i.e. non-lawyer judges) in civil litigation?
Is the concept of lay judges outdated or helpful?
3- Interesting Cases
Lawyers from all over the world will address the audience with cases that are either spectacular, precedent-setting,
interesting or entertaining – in other words: of interest to our litigation community.
Litigation
Family Law
Alternative Dispute Resolution and the Role of Today's Family Lawyer
We and our speakers will be answering the following questions:
1. What are the different types of Alternative Family Dispute Resolution offered in your country?
2. What are the different roles for a family lawyer in alternative dispute resolution?
3. Is a family lawyer really needed in mediations?
4. “Mediation is not a magic bullet”. For what cases does mediation not work?
5. “Arbitration - the best way for a cheat to get away with non-disclosure of assets”.
How does your country ensure fairness in alternative dispute resolution?
6. Which type of Alternative Family Dispute Resolution do you favour, and why?
7. What privilege or confidentiality attaches to Alternative Family Dispute Resolution in your country?
8. Discuss the different ways in which Alternative Family Dispute Resolution can be performed in your country.
For example, can it be performed by Skype or over the telephone?
What challenges and opportunities do such methods raise?

Criminal Law
Witness Preparation in a Criminal Case: Good Lawyering or Obstruction of Justice
Under many systems, preparation of witnesses in a criminal case, including rehearsal of testimony, is either prohibited or restricted. In the United States, it is routine and a key component of legal representation. What explains
these differences? What are the traps for criminal lawyers under the different systems, and particularly in a crossborder criminal case? Is there a way to reconcile these opposing legal traditions?

Whose Data Is It?
We are living in the “digital” age, in which data about us and our lives has become, according to a favorite
metaphor, the new currency or the new oil. This data is being recorded, stored and used by third parties and
governments. Do you “own” your data? To what degree should you be entitled to keep it private, to control its use,
or even to make it disappear? Questions abound, and this joint session will approach the most important ones
from a legal perspective.

Franchising Agreements : It's Not All About Location, Location, Location!
Franchising provides opportunities for franchisor and franchisee alike. For the franchisor, it can be a relatively low
-cost way of expanding in a given market. For the franchisee, franchising can be a low risk way to individual prosperity. But success is not simply a question of premises' location, because other factors including a solid operating
model, a proven track record and a viable brand are also necessary. There is also no substitute for a well-drafted,
understandable and balanced agreement regulating these and other aspects of the relationship between the parties. During this session we will explore the most important legal and contractual elements to take into account
when drafting and negotiating a franchising agreement, both as lawyer for the franchisor and for the franchisee,
including the necessary compliance with the applicable competition law regulations.

Innovation, Health and the Right to Know: The Law of Food, Fiber and Toxins
Questions about the safety of food supply are fundamental. Innovation, reflected in genetically modified foods,
is a moral issue for the European Union, and a subject of intense interest. Questions arise about food labeling
amongst international trading partners. This programme will consider the supposed health benefits and risks of
GMO innovations, including how GMOs may impact, from an epigenetics perspective, which genes are turned on
in future generations. We will also consider how risks are managed and insured, including from a torts perspective.

The session seeks to debate the international legal framework for the export of cultural goods (e.g. conventions,
