Annual Conference 2016

of the Institute for Applied Economic Law on Friday, 14 October 2016, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m

Focus: Corporate law

One of the central pillars of the Institute's public relations activities is the annual conference, which takes place regularly. Interesting speakers, current topics and sufficient time for discussion and networking give the event, which takes place in the Hamburg Dockland, its typical character.

Whether corporate law, banking or labour law; the focus is always on professional exchange at a high level. For this reason, the event is also designed as further training for specialist lawyers. The breadth of the Institute's content demands and encourages networking between the various disciplines of commercial law and taking the input of the various speakers and participants as overarching suggestions for their own practice.

Guests are always welcome.
