UIA is excited to offer the world’s lawyers a new annual landmark event, the UIAMidyear! Our first UIAMidyear will take place June 7-10, 2021.

• UIA 12th Business Law Forum (4 x 2 hours)
New regulations and recent legal developments deriving from Covid-19 situation: temporary or here to stay? How legislators around the world have addressed new challenges arising from Covid-19
The different commissions involved in the UIA Business Law Forum - BLF will discuss recent legal developments and analyze the new regulations introduced by national and supranational entities aimed to tackle the new challenges arising from the new Covid-19 situation. The commissions will review the different regulations enacted by different jurisdictions to minimize the problems created by the pandemic and will compare approaches adopted in the relevant jurisdictions and their results. It will also be analyzed whether or not some of these new measures will outlast the pandemic and how they can improve the different business law practices.
