3RD TRUSTS AND WEALTH MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE 2019
ASIAN WEALTH AND THE GLOBAL CONTEXT
This is the third conference in the “Modern Studies in the Law of Trusts and Wealth Management” series co-organised by the Singapore Academy of Law, the Centre for Cross-Border Commercial Law in Asia Singapore Management University, and the University of York with the support of Trust Law International.
Like its predecessors, the conference will focus on current developments and challenges facing trust law and wealth management in the contemporary political climate. For 2019, the theme will place particular emphasis on the issues raised by the growth of Asian wealth, and the global context in which that is happening. The conveners of the conference (Richard Nolan (York), Tang Hang Wu (SMU) and Yip Man (SMU)) plan to produce a published volume from papers presented at this conference, and, possibly, a journal special issue.
Keynote Speech will be delivered by The Right Honourable Lady Arden of Heswall DBE, Justice of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom. The confirmed speakers include Chan Ee Lin (NTU), Thomas Gallanis (Iowa), Jamie Glister (Cambridge), Lusina Ho (HKU), Adam Hofri-Winogradow (Hebrew), Arif Jamal (NUS), James Lee (KCL), Lou Jianbo (Peking), John Mee (Cork), Kelvin Low (CityU/SMU), Tamaruya Masayuki (Rikkyo), Jessica Palmer (Otago), David Pollard (Wilberforce Chambers, London), Philippa Ryan (University of Technology Sydney), Tang Hang Wu (SMU), Graham Virgo QC (Cambridge), Yip Man (SMU) and Simone Wong (Kent).
