Dear Colleague,
I am pleased to inform you about the seminar that will take place at the Barcelona Bar Association on Friday 3rd October 2008. The seminar is entitled fight against late payment in the European context.

The seminar, taking place regularly every two or three years in Barcelona about procedural Law, is an initiative of AEA-EAL European Association of Lawyers because of the next entry into force of the 1896/2006 Regulation creating an European order of payment procedure. How it works and the interaction with national law and other rules will be treated. It is a good opportunity to review questions that, regardless of working in the field of international affaires or not, do affect to our daily work in an international economic scenario, currently in crisis.
I will be looking forward to your presence on this occasion. Please reserve the date in your diary!
