Conference bi-annuelle de Mai 2018

Warsaw

23 - 26 May 2018


Le comité organisateur a le plaisir d’inviter les membres de l’AIJA en Pologne à l’occasion de la Conférence de Mai 2018.

Comptant parmi les villes les plus vibrantes d’Europe à la croissance galopante, Varsovie est une fascinante collection de quartiers et monuments. Truffée d’architecture moderne rutilante, de palais baroques, de bâtiments empreints du réalisme socialiste, de certains des plus beaux parcs urbains d’Europe Centrale et des vestiges d’un riche héritage juif qui forment un mélange unique, la ville attire le monde des affaires au travers de grandes entreprises d’une part et d’autre part des start-ups qui insufflent à la ville leur énergie et leur créativité.

Afin de refléter cette atmosphère avec un programme scientifique tout aussi passionnant, la conférence sera scindée en deux séminaires qui porteront respectivement sur la gouvernance d’entreprise « Gouvernance d’entreprise – tendances actuelles et développement » (organisé avec le soutien de la Commission Droit des Sociétés et M&A) et sur la relation avocat-client « Heureux jusqu’à la fin des temps ! Comment développer des relations client-conseil fructueuses selon les juristes d’entreprise et les cabinets d’avocats » (préparée en coopération avec la Commission Compétences, Carrière, Innovation, Gestion et Formation).

Le programme scientifique et le programme social offrirons tous deux bon nombre d’excellentes opportunités de développer votre réseau.
