International Conventions in Family Law


22 - 24 September 2005

The Hague Conventions, Brussels IIa and others: many practitioners know how treacherous litigation can be in international family law. There is a tangling, sometimes thorn- and trap-full path of many international conventions, treaties and agreements existing between European and Non-European countries, many of them exclusively focusing on family law litigation. A regular continued legal education coping with these difficult issues is paramount. A good reason for us to examine the various elements of such family law cases: Which laws are applicable on divorce, custody and alimony? Where to sue, where to run to for possibly more favourable juridical results? How to move about the complex jungle of national, European, bilateral and international law?
