17 November - International Private Law

At this event you will learn about the types of information important to know regarding matters that might require legal help while living in Sweden.

There will be two events about international private law. During this first one you will learn about the types of information important to know regarding matters that might require legal help while living in Sweden.

Different countries have different rules regarding your private life, work, studies and other aspects of your stay in a new country – for example concerning matters of marriage, divorce, custody, inheritance, labor law, and residence.

For expats, it is important to understand which country’s law is most applicable for settling such matters. This often requires complicated assessments that should be looked at by an expert.

The second event 19 November will give you the opportunity to ask further questions, see website for more information.

The registration will open up two weeks before the event, at the latest.

During our events we sometimes take photographs and short film clips to profile our activities. Please let us know if you don’t want to be in any photos/films before we start the event.
