Our commissions are ready!
Each year, the UIA commissions prepare work sessions on current legal issues.
These commissions convene qualified speakers, lawyers or not, belonging to different jurisdictions to propose a broad vision of the problems presented and a diversified panel of responses.
The sessions always have a question and answer space, thus offering great interactivity between the speakers and the participants.
Discover below our sessions, classified by commission and / or by day.
Some commissions join forces and offer joint sessions. In Luxembourg, there will be five joint sessions:
Biotechnology Law / Medical Law / Insurance Law

Congress resolution on the retirement of lawyers!
The Retirement and Pension Commission proposes a round table that will talk about the current state of retirement of lawyers.
Pension systems for lawyers are often different from one country to another, but in general, countries have managed to build their own system that meets their needs and, therefore, is specific.
This specificity is today undermined and questioned in many countries.
After several papers that will illustrate this diversity and the richness of the latter, there must be a great debate at the UIA Congress in Luxembourg.
Its objective? Demonstrate how important it is for lawyers to own their social protection and the decisions they make when they retire.
In the end, the possibility of agreeing during the Congress a motion that demonstrates the adherence of lawyers to a specific pension plan would once again be an expression of the independence of the profession.
