GENERAL CONGRESS – Paris, 1-3 october 2020







Dear President, Dear Colleague,

We would like to confirm that our next General Congress will be held in Paris next 1-3 October. The Congress will focus on the following topic: Access to Law and Justice: European Bar Associations and Lawyers on the Front Line”.

I am delighted to inform you that we have included two new sessions during this Congress:

The Twinning Forum

The aim of this forum will be  to enable Bar Associations to launch new cooperation projects or to revive pre-existing cooperation projects. Secondly, to propose twinning arrangements to Bars which have not yet taken part in cooperation projects. 

Special Session “Pro Bono: the marketplace of ideas!”

Session dedicated to Bars associations and lawyers’ Pro Bono initiatives.

I am attaching the general and the scientific programs.

We are pleased to inform you that the site of the Congress will be available next 16th July containing all the information, so that you can proceed to register from this date. As usually, there will be an “early bird registration” so we recommend you to register before the 1st of September.

Best wishes.

Silvia Giménez-Salinas

President of the European Bars Federation
