The International Association of Language Commissioners

Sponsored by the First Minister of Wales, the Rt Hon. Carwyn Jones AM

The Chair of the International Association of Language Commissioners (IALC), Meri Huws, cordially invites you to a special reception to launch the Association’s annual conference and to extend a warm Welsh welcome to the Commissioners and Ombudsmen. The event will also provide an opportunity to celebrate the 50 year anniversary of the Welsh Language Act (1967): a significant piece of legislation which established rights for people to use Welsh in legal proceedings in Wales and paved the way for subsequent legislation recognising the rights of Welsh speakers.

Speakers:

  • Elin Jones AM, Presiding Officer of the National Assembly for Wales
  • Rt Hon. Sir David Lloyd Jones, Lord Justice of Appeal

Simultaneous interpretation service from Welsh to English will be provided.

The Commissioner wishes to thank the The Law Society for their generous sponsorship towards this event.
