May 6-7 2011 – EAL’s 25th Anniversary Congress


On May the 6th and 7th 2011, the European Association of Lawyers held a congress celebrating its 25th anniversary under the important but still largely ignored main topic of ‘Insolvency under European law’. The European Commission’s best specialists underlined the growing importance of European law and its impact on our own legal systems. Well known specialists explained the complexity of the European Insolvency Regulation, the problems related and number of legal consequences to be aware of.

Half a day has been devoted to lobbying activities practised by lawyers. Our speakers, both lawyers and Presidents of Bars, have shared their experiences and points of view on this necessary subject.

It was a wonderful, instructive and successful congress with broad interest, top specialist speakers and very positive feedbacks.

The speakers’ presentations have been collected and are, with their authors’ authorisations, available below.
