    The University of Florence (L. Stanghellini / R. Mokal), the Humboldt Universität von Berlin (C. Paulus) and the Universidad Autónoma of Madrid (I. Tirado) are holding a full-day workshop in Brussels to 
     
    (i) present the results of an EU-funded research project* on contractual and semi-formal debt restructuring tools in the EU, 
     
    (ii) debate the results with attendants and foster critical analysis thereof, and 
     
    (iii) discuss the implications of the project´s outcome on the Directive Proposal of 22 November 2016.

    The workshop will take place in Brussels at the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS), 1 Place du Congres, 1000 Brussels.

    The final agenda and preparatory materials, including country reports for Italy, the UK, Germany and Spain as well as a 'best practices' chapter will be circulated in advance of the meeting.

    In the meantime, we would ask you to put the date in your diary. We regard your participation in this invitation-only event to be of the utmost importance, both to the project outcome and to the broader debate on informal and semi-formal restructuring.

    Globalisation at the heart of the 2018 International Young Lawyers’ Congress in Brussels

    The International Association of Young Lawyers – AIJA, is hosting the 56th International Young Lawyers’ Congress from 28 August to 1 September 2018, in Brussels, Belgium. Registrations are open and early bird fees are available until 5 July.
     
    More than 700 young legal practitioners will gather from around the world in Brussels to discuss how globalisation is changing the practice of law. This year’s theme will be: is the dream of globalisation over? Are we heading towards or away from international integration?
     
    The Congress will start with a one-day seminar on how to become an international lawyer, with the aim to explore the abilities and know-how a lawyer should have to be a truly international professional. This will be followed by several other working sessions and workshops covering a wide range of legal topics related to labour and immigration, M&A transactions, transport, real estate, technology, trade and international business. In addition to the scientific programme, AIJA has planned a variety of social and networking activities to enable you to experience the best in local Belgian food, nature and entertainment.
     
    You can choose to attend the full week of Congress from 28 August to 1 September or the Pre-Congress Seminar “How to become an international lawyer?” on Tuesday, 28 August only. To register and find out more about the programme, please visit the Congress website.
