In principle, the Seminar is open to the public. However, with a view to controlling the number of participants, members of the Korea Private International Law Association and members of the Korean Securities Law Association, as well as practicing lawyers of major Korean law firms in Seoul and experts of securities firms and banks in Seoul will receive an official invitation. Those who have received an official invitation will have priority. The number of participants is expected to be around 100.
