Twinning Lawyers September 12, 2020

The European Lawyers Association (AEA-EAL) together with the Gdańsk District Chamber of Attorney-at-law’s and the Bar Council of the Odessa District and in consultation with the Azerbaijani, Belarus, Georgia, Kaliningrad, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Moldovan Young Lawyers Association (MYLA) is organizing on September 12, 2020 Twinning Lawyers.

This unique event is taking place for the second time, the aim of which is to strengthen mutual contacts between lawyers from European Union countries and colleagues from Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia.

Last year’s Twinning in Gdańsk turned out to be a great success. In the Cooperation Agreement signed at that time, the participants decided to organize this event in a different country every year. This year our meeting was supposed to take place in Odessa, Ukraine, but due to the situation related to the coronavirus pandemic, we had to take the form of a virtual conference.

Its subject matter will focus on new technologies and their ethical use within the framework of sustainable social and economic development.

The framework program of the event is as follows:

Saturday, September 12:

10.00 – 10.20 – Welcome speeches

10.20 – 12.00 – 1st part of the conference:

1st panel: Virtual Law Firm: principles of operation, for and against
