On behalf of The International Association of Young Lawyers (AIJA), we are delighted to invite you to the annual Half-Year Conference to be held in Riga on 17-20 May 2017.

The international conference, organised by one of the biggest lawyers’ associations worldwide, is held in a different country every year. Held in the Baltic region for the first time, the conference provides an exclusive opportunity for lawyers from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania to participate by offering special registration rates.

Representatives from international law firms and companies will be sharing their insights: Valeriya Kirsey, Allen & Overy (UK); Krzysztof Fliszkiewicz, DZP (Poland); Donata Freiin von Enzberg, Taylor Wessing (Germany); Andra-Cristina Tihauan, Bird & Bird (France); Evita Goša, Cemex (Latvia); Rytis Valūnas, Klaipedos Nafta (Lithuania); Cristobal Alonso, Startup Wise Guys (Estonia) and others.

Two parallel sessions will be held at the conference:

  • The start-up world – From seed to crop: current trends and developments
  • Environmental & energy transactions – how to conduct / avoid litigation?

In addition to an outstanding scientific programme, other activities are offered to conference participants:

  • Human rights session on “Fake News: an insidious threat to human rights?”.
  • Legal writing coaching sessions.
  • Corporate counsel breakfast for all in-house lawyers attending the conference.
  • Riga Marathon – since a significant number of sports aficionados are among AIJA members and the Riga Marathon is just few days before the conference, an AIJA team is being formed.

For Baltic lawyers, the lowest early bird rate will be valid until the day of the conference.

Participants will also be offered an exceptional social programme considered one of the best among lawyers’ associations conferences.
