Seminar organised by the UIA

Co-sponsored by the ABA Section of Litigation and the ABA Section of International Law

Aspen in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado is the most famous ski resort in the USA. The majestic slopes draw visitors from all over the world. Originally inhabited by the Ute Indians, Aspen became a silver-mining town during the mining boom of the late 1800s. Following the devaluation of silver, Aspen experienced a cultural renaissance in the 1940s. Aspen provides the perfect surrounding for a winter seminar. Participants can reload their batteries, refresh their minds and forget their worries. UIA Winter Seminars have the reputation of being magic. A most inspiring program, in depth discussions and excellent opportunities for social interactions provide a most appealing platform and atmosphere for the professional and personal advancement.
