AIJA introduces a new series of online networking events titled “AIJA Learn & Network”, and organised in partnership with other international lawyers’ associations.

The first AIJA Learn & Network event is with UIA, the International Association of Lawyers, on Thursday, 25 March, from 14:00 to 15:30 CET.

We will kick off with a short introduction and welcome from the Presidents of the two associations, Jorge Martí Moreno (UIA) and François Barré (AIJA), and the UIA Young Lawyers Subcommittee President Flora Harragin. This will be followed by a keynote address on on how innovation and tech can help lawyers to be more client-centered in difficult times.  The event will close with a social activity on a different platform especially designed for networking where you can move around your avatar to interact with others and join different conversations.
