AIJA elects new President

08 September 2015

Orsolya 2015At the general assembly convened on the 5th of September in London, Orsolya Görgényi took over as the new president of the International Association of Young Lawyers. Orsolya, a partner at Szecskay Attorneys at Law, an independent Hungarian law firm located in Budapest which is top-ranked in all the major legal directories, is the first AIJA president in the association's more than half a century history who comes from Central Eastern Europe. As a lawyer specialized in corporate, employment and tax matters, Orsolya advises Hungarian and multinational clients in connection with M&A deals and the legal aspects of doing business in Hungary. After a long career within AIJA, which has included being the National Representative for Hungary, the congress chair of the 2009 AIJA congress and the co-chair of the Law Course Committee in charge of AIJA's seminars, Orsolya will now be leading AIJA for the upcoming year.

"AIJA events provide unique learning and networking opportunities for all career-building lawyers who are working on the international scene and they are essential for promoting legal culture and for enhancing cooperation and friendship between lawyers from all over the world. The current instability of the global climate makes it our duty to maintain and foster international avenues of communication. Today's young lawyers are tomorrow's leaders and they play a vital role in spreading an ethical legal and business culture and in assisting governments, NGO-s and businesses to deal with challenges which arise and to become more socially responsible. AIJA not only helps to contribute to making the world a better place through the friendships built here among different cultures and nations, it also helps the participants' personal and career development and business generation in a very efficient and enjoyable way."
