"The Conference on the theme 'Outsourcing versus Restructuring' is scheduled to take place on February 9 and 10, 2012 at the Cinnamon Grand Hotel and is intended to create awareness about Sri Lanka as a preferred destination of choice for Legal Process Outsourcing (LPO), which is one of the objectives of the Forum called the legal Solutions Forum (LSF), established in 2011" BASL President Shibly Aziz, PC said. He was speaking at a recent media briefing held in Colombo BASL and the young lawyers' largest international association AIJA (Association Internationale des Jeunes Avocats).

"The AIJA with the support of ICTA approached us wanting to have an international conference to popularise Sri Lanka as an outsourcing hub for legal services and we grabbed the opportunity", the BASL President confirmed.

"Thanks to this initiative, not only lawyers but also business people and the Government will benefit from the inflow of foreign exchange", the BASL President explained. Thanking the ICT Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) for its guidance and support for the up-coming seminar the BASL President introduced ICTA Director /Legal Advisor Jayantha Fernando "as one of the leading world authorities on the subject of ICT Law". BASL Secretary Mahinda Lokuge, Representative of AIJA Attorney John Wilson and Javed Mansoor were present at the Press conference.

Speaking briefly at the press briefing Jayantha Fernando said, "As the apex ICT entity of the country, ICTA's main objective here is to come and provide strategic partnership support not only for this specific event - SL's first international LPO seminar in February - but also to provide continued support to promote the country as a destination for legal outsourcing, in the same way we have done in the past. We are pleased that the Legal Solutions Forum (LSF) has recently been established with the support of BASL.
