Laurent Anselmi, Monaco’s Director of Judicial Services and President of the State Council, took part in the International Legal Forum in St Petersburg from May 15 to 17, which brought together many figures from the legal world. At the end of the event, an international private law prize was awarded.
On the sidelines of this event, Mr Anselmi also met with Maxim Travnikov, Deputy Minister of Justice of the Russian Federation.
In addition to formal presentations, the interview provided an opportunity for the Director of Judicial Services to explain the specificities of the Monegasque administration and judicial organisation, as well as to discuss various aspects of the justice system of common interest, including the state of play of negotiations on a draft bilateral agreement on cooperation on the adoption of children.
More general themes were also discussed, related to international standards as well as sports law among others.
