UIA is excited to be taking you on a trip around the legal world in three days: an educational and enriching journey you will not want to miss!

Connect with the global legal community, expand your network, and increase your knowledge of current legal issues – all from your home or office anywhere in the world!

Our Virtual Congress will take place online on October 28, 29 and 30, in a variety of online conference halls and meeting rooms that will replace – and outshine – our usual in-person venue.

What to expect

• Live panel discussions and practice tips by leading experts on a wide array of cutting legal issues
• Opening and Closing Ceremonies
• Social events, committee meetings and networking opportunities
• Access to substantive video presentations on demand during and after the Congress

An exciting virtual experience

UIA will have its own virtual conference centre! The Congress platform is ideal for both formal presentations and casual conversation among colleagues using a variety of technologies, including webinars, discussion groups and interactive chat.  Our Congress partners will be available to interact directly with participants in our virtual exhibit hall. Your virtual Congress briefcase will allow you to easily save all the information and resources you found interesting in one easily accessible space.

All scheduled times for UIA 2020 Virtual Congress live programming are listed in Central European Time – CET (Paris).  Are some events inconvenient for your time zone?  No worries!  Although content will be broadcast live, we will also record all sessions and make them available to participants -- so you will not miss anything regardless of your location!
