The EAPIL founding conference is now just a few days away. As the readers of this blog know, the event will take place in Aarhus on 2, 3 and 4 June 2022.
On 2 June, Peter-Arnt Nielsen (Copenhagen Business School) will provide kick-off the event with a key-note speech followed by a Report from Brussels, by Andreas Stein (Head of Unit, European Commission), and a Report from Luxembourg, by Maciej Szpunar (Advocate General, Court of Justice of the European Union).
The conference itself will start on 3 June, and will feature three blocks: the first will discuss the digitalization in European Private International Law, the second will be about fragmentation in European Private International Law, while the third block will address the future challenges for European Private International Law.
Further information on the conference can be found here.
The first General Assembly of the European Association of Private International Law will be held on 3 June 2022, as part of the conference.
EAPIL members are called upon to elect the chair of the General Assembly, renew the Board of the Association and elect the members of Scientific Council. All three votes will occur online.
Three e-mails have recently been sent to all EAPIL members with instructions on how to cast their vote for each of the above positions, through a voting platform called Abstimmen Online. If you are member and you haven’t received such e-mails, please check your spam folder. Feel free to reach out to the Secretary General (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need assistance.
The poll, which is currently open, ends on 2 June 2022 at 8 pm CET. The results will be announced during the General Assembly.
See you in Aarhus!
