Visit by the Secretary General of the Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe (CCBE)


On 7 February, ELI Secretary General, Dr Vanessa Wilcox, welcomed Philip Buisseret, Secretary General of the CCBE, to the premises of the ELI Secretariat in Vienna.

As one of the ELI’s Founding Institutional Observers, the ELI is grateful to the CCBE for its longstanding commitment over the years. The meeting on 7 February marked an opportunity for both Secretary Generals to update each other on recent developments within their respective organisations and also potential platforms through which to intensify their ties.

Secretary General Buisseret is a frequent and honoured guest of the ELI Secretariat and his visit to Vienna was in the course of CCBE Expert Committee and Standing Committee meetings in conjunction with the Presidents’ Conference.
