The 59th Annual International Young Lawyers’ Congress will take place from 24 to 28 August 2021 in Zurich, Switzerland. GSK Stockmann is sponsor of the congress.
Under the theme “Innovation: Exploring tomorrow’s legal world”, the congress will be a resource for all international lawyers, searching for new ideas and models to shape the future of their practice. With the congress taking place as a hybrid event (onsite and online) for the first time, AIJA aims to create an even stronger sense of community across its membership by providing access to networking and high-quality content.
With a team of lawyers, GSK Stockmann will be represented at the AIJA Congress in Zurich: While Dr. Jens Uwe Rügenhagen (Local Partner at GSK Stockmann in Heidelberg) is “Academic Coordinator”, Valerio Scollo (Local Partner at GSK Stockmann in Luxembourg) will be moderator in the session “Technology Transforming Tradition: Fintech Innovation in Banking and Capital Markets” on 26 August 2021. Furthermore, Dr. Antonius Jonetzki (Local Partner at GSK Stockmann in Hamburg) will participate as representative.
AIJA (International Assocation of Young Lawyers – Association Internationale des Jeunes Avocats) is the only global association dedicated to lawyers and in-house counsel under the age of 45. Since 1962, AIJA has provided outstanding international opportunities for young lawyers to network, learn and develop.
