Lawyers in Bird & Bird’s Madrid office have committed to the Madrid Local Government’s Know Your Laws programme (Conoce tus leyes), which aims to help immigrants living in the city understand their rights and obligations.
Our Madrid team have been taking part in the project from its first edition several years ago. On Saturday evenings our lawyers deliver 2-4-hour sessions on various aspects of the Spanish legislation – from the fundamental rights to more practical day-to-day advice - in different "Centres for Integration" in Madrid. Each centre tends to attract around 100 attendees of varying nationalities. The topics generate significant interest and debate and the feedback is very positive.
