In April 2020, in light of the COVID-19 outbreak, AIJA have come to the difficult decision to cancel our 58th Annual Congress in Rio de Janeiro. Since then, the Association has made arrangements to hold a virtual congress in its place, and we’re also assessing the possibility to host a future congress in Rio de Janeiro. We love Rio, #wearecarioca!

Save the date

From 24 to 28 August 2020, the 58th Annual Congress will take place in a virtual format with pre-recorded and live sessions, allowing for a wide participation from around the world. The existing programme will be adapted to an online format, with five half-days focused on diversity in different areas of practice as well as in the legal profession, under the theme ‘United in Diversity: Empowering our Future’.

Information about the detailed programme, speakers, registration fees will be available soon.

Registration is expected to open in early July.

An interactive virtual experience

Networking has always been one of the most important part of our in-person events. The virtual congress will use an online event platform where attendees can access live chat rooms, enabling them to network from anywhere in the world. Additionally, sponsors can have their own booths where they can experience live interaction with attendees in a virtual exhibit hall.

Join us in this virtual space as we learn, network, share from the comfort of our desk, with:

  • Educational and academic pre-recorded and live sessions available in an on-demand format after the event
  • Opening and closing keynotes
  • AIJAWomen Network launch
  • AIJA’s Got Talent
  • Home Hospitality
  • Live chats with speakers, sponsors and peers through a dedicated virtual platform
  • A virtual exhibit hall
  • Association meetings (Executive Committee, Annual General Assembly)

We’re committed to making the virtual congress accessible to everyone. All sessions and recordings will be closed captioned.
