Conventions pertaining to the Hague Convention and international service of process can be difficult for people in the United States to attend as they generally take place once a year internationally. This year though in honor of the 50th anniversary of the 1965 Hague Service Convention and the 45th anniversary of the 1970 Hague Evidence Convention there will be a special convention taking place right in Washington DC.
