The 3rd BARCELONA LAW CONGRESS, an event which enabled all collegiate members to attend to different talks regarding current issues, was held the last 12th of July. Alba Ródenas-Borràs was able to participate and to moderate an interesting conference about “litigation funds” alongside Clifford J. Hendel and Cristina Soler, professional experts on the area.

Besides being a success between the numerous attendees, the talk achieved to introduce and publicise clearly and concisely the field of the litigation and arbitration third-party funding, an activity which it seems to be gaining relevance within different legal systems all over the world, been the Spanish legal system one of them.

We wish to thank the ICAB and the International Private Law and European Law Section for including in the Congress agenda the “litigation funds” conference, and therefore encouraging the knowledge of this new praxis.
