The final conference of the JUDGTRUST project on the application of the Brussels I bis Regulation will take place in the Hague (and on-line) on 21 and 22 April 2022, organised by the Asser Institute with the University of Hamburg, the University of Antwerp and the Internationaal Juridisch Instituut.
The conference concludes a two-year project on the correct and consistent application of the Regulation. The research findings of the project will be presented and the conference will provide an opportunity to share knowledge amongst academics, legal practitioners and legislators on how to achieve a greater consistency among various instruments in order to enhance the legal certainty, predictability and access to justice in cross border legal transactions.
The conference will offer an opportunity to discuss about the interpretation of the Regulation; the difficulties in the application and interpretation of the Regulation by State courts; consistency within the European private international law system, and possible solutions.
