UIA 15th Winter Seminar: Recent Legal Developments and Soft Law
M&A, Corporate Law, Sports & Entertainment Law, White Collar Crimes and Dispute Resolution

Seminar organised by the UIA, co-sponsored by the ABA Litigation Section and the ABA Section of International Law

This UIA 15th Winter Seminar promises to be again very exceptional. Part of the magic of the UIA Winter Seminar is its informal and dynamic nature. Half of the time of each presentation is dedicated to Q & A in which other delegates can share experiences from their own practices, keeping everyone entertained and involved. 

At the 15th Winter Seminar, the aim is again to bring together delegates from various UIA Commissions, lawyers and other legal professionals, practicing in different areas and coming from all over the world, thereby facilitating and fostering an interdisciplinary and transnational exchange with fruitful discussions on recent legal developments and soft law in the fields of M&A, Corporate Law, Sports & Entertainment Law, White Collar Crimes and Dispute Resolution.

St. Anton am Arlberg, a cozy little town with 2,470 inhabitants has still maintained its genuine ambiance and charming atmosphere. Relax and unwind at the elevation of 1,300m where crisp and clean mountain air is guaranteed! Experience genuine Tirolean hospitality and spend the most beautiful days of the year among colleagues. Ski Arlberg, being referred to as the cradle of Alpine skiing (http://www.skiarlberg.at/en) and to which St. Anton belongs, will provide an exceptional environment for ski, winter sports and outdoor enthusiasts.

Do not miss this opportunity to meet with your colleagues. Mark your diaries now, save the date and make sure to register!

We look forward to welcoming you to St. Anton!
