HazloLaw’s, Martin Aquilina furthers expertise by participating in study session at the prestigious Academy of International Law in The Hague

OTTAWA, Ontario – August 24, 2018 – Martin Aquilina, who holds a Master’s degree in Private International Law from the University of Groningen, in the Netherlands,  has returned from a three-week study session at the prestigious Academy of International Law in The Hague. The Academy was created in 1925 following a bequest from the Carnegie Foundation.  Every year since then, the Academy has invited leading academics to lecture on evolving developments within the field of international law.

By participating in the study session, Martin has acquired further tools to structure his thinking in the area of private international law, an area in which few practicing lawyers have expertise. As an international lawyer, Martin plays the role of a facilitator for foreign companies to settle, operate and manage disputes in the Canadian legal system and for Canadian companies to do the same abroad.  He also acts as special counsel, assisting lawyers from other firms in matters where private international law comes into play.
