What's new Mrs President?

Dear Friends,

It was less than two months ago that I took over the presidency of AIJA in London, at the very successful annual congress where more than 700 delegates from over 60 countries participated, and this time has already been packed with internal work and outside representation. 

I had the honor and pleasure to be in Dresden, Germany at the 20th anniversary of the DAV Junge Anwaltschaft (Young section of the German Lawyers' Association), as well as at the very prestigious Opening of the Legal Year in London, where I was among high profile bar association leaders with whom I participated at a round table discussion about the independence of the legal profession. I was very excited and delighted to open the very successful AIJA double seminars in Frankfurt, which took place exactly during the 25th anniversary celebrations of the reunification of Germany, and to be in Vienna representing AIJA at the annual congress of IBA. Not to mention READ MORE
London mon amour!

Bring together 700 international young lawyers. Choose for this gathering one the most vibrant cities: London. Arrange for them a busy 5-day schedule with more than 50 hours of training and lectures, 190 speakers coming from all around the world, interactive panels, interesting presentations, lively discussions. Give them sufficient time to network, share about their respective businesses, build relationships that will accompany them in their future careers. Cuddle them with an entertaining social programme: Speed Dating for a fast (yet effective) ice-breaking activity; Opening Ceremony for listening to top level speakers and get inspired by new ideas; Home Hospitality dinner to find out more about local hospitality in an informal setting; Day Out to have a break after so many sessions and business meetings; Gala Dinner to enjoy a fancy (007 themed) elegant dinner with colleagues and friends. This perfect mix is the unmissable AIJA Congress, the International Young Lawyers’ event par excellence.
