Brexit and Private International Law: Register Now for the First EAPIL Virtual Seminar!

As announced earlier on this blog, EAPIL will hold its first Virtual Seminar on 11 December 2020, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (MET).

Devoted to the impact of Brexit on Private International Law, the seminar will feature speakers from the United Kingdom and the European Continent.

They will analyze the legal framework that will apply to cross-border cases in the short-term, i.e. as of 1 January 2021 when the transition period provided for in the Withdrawal Agreement expires. Speakers will also discuss what the future relationship between the EU and the UK could and should look like.

Special emphasis will be placed on the question of whether the EU and the UK should strive to adopt a new – bespoke – bilateral agreement (or whether it should simply join existing international conventions).

The speakers of the first session, on civil and commercial matters, will be Alexander Layton (Twenty Essex Street Chambers, London), Eva Lein (University of Lausanne) and Michiel Poesen (KU Leuven).

In the second session, Sir Andrew Moylan (Court of Appeal of England and Wales), Pietro Franzina (Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Milan) and Anatol Dutta (Ludwig Maximilian University Munich), will focus, instead, on family matters.

Register here if you wish to discuss with us.

Registered participants will receive the details to join the seminar on 10 December 2020.

  1. Could we receive a recording of the seminar in case we cannot attend?

    • Thank you for your question and your interest in the first EAPIL Virtual Seminar. We will not record the event this time. But we will take your comment as an occasion to discuss whether we want to record future events. In any case, we have offered all speakers to publish all their statements on the EAPIL blog so that you can get an idea of the topics covered.
