WHAT IS THIS ABOUT?
For more than 30 years the European Lawyers’ Union (U.A.E.) has brought together practicing lawyers from across Europe with the primary aim of promoting the professional practice of law, as well as furthering the practice of European Union Law and of the European Convention on Human Rights.
The General Assembly meeting, usually held in the last months of each year, is an important part of the associations’ year, and includes both an institutional component and a conference about a theme of topical interest.
This year the General Assembly will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, on 30 November and 1 December 2018, and our conference will debate The Legal Implications of Brexit, the planned withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union, which is scheduled to occur at the end of March 2019 but is still surrounded by significant uncertainty.
We are therefore pleased to invite you to the conference and gala dinner on Friday, 30 November, and, if you are a member of the Association, to attend the General Assembly meeting on Saturday, 1 December.
The conference will take place in the afternoon of Friday, 30 November, at the seat of the Portuguese Bar Association, a 18th Century former palace in downtown Lisbon, and will host two roundtables with exciting speakers, which will debate The Legal Implications of Brexit, followed by a gala dinner at the Grémio Literário.
The morning of Saturday 1 December will be dedicated to the U.A.E. General Assembly, as well as to a meeting of the Executive Committee of the Association, at the offices of Morais Leitão, Galvão Teles, Soares da Silva & Associados.
