"The World's most impactful Conference for the Legal Industry"


What is GLF

The Global Legal Forum is conceived and established by Law Pundits, with support of The Hague City Council and The Hague Convention Bureau.


The Global Legal Forum (GLF) , has gained an international reputation since its first event hosted at the peace palace as the international forum that brought together law ministries, legal academia, judiciary, arbitrators, mediators, law firms, in-house counsels, law students, policy makers and legal technology companies along with the non-legal professionals and businesses to engage and works together to address several issues affecting business, society, legal industry and the world at large and to find solutions and determine actionable goals.
