All over the world, business entities prefer the use of the English law system in their activities, since English law is characterized by flexibility, adaptability and practicality. In this regard, it is not surprising that more than 60% of contracts worldwide are carried out in the frames of this system.
Taking into account the specified features of English law, due to its ability to face the newly emerging "legal challenges" associated with the development of new technologies, such as cryptocurrencies and others, it seems necessary to start implementing certain elements of English law, which have not been yet covered by national legislation.
It should be noted that the new policy of Uzbekistan is based on the principle of openness, the main goal of which is constructive and mutually beneficial cooperation. Given the growing interest of entrepreneurs and business circles operating in the English legal system in doing business in Uzbekistan, the creation of equal favorable conditions for each investor, especially in the legal sphere, is one of the most topical issues.
Based on the above, one of the sessions of the II International Legal Forum “Tashkent Law Spring” is dedicated to the topic on Features of the system of common (english) law.
The following topical issues are planned to be discussed during the session:
– Why Economic Reform and Establishing An English Common Law Jurisdiction in Uzbekistan Must Go Hand in Hand;
