European Lawyers Congress

In 2018, the legal profession faces considerable challenges which has prompted the Brussels Bar (Dutch and French Sections) to organise a reflection on a greater unification of professional rules.

On Friday 1 June, all European presidents and chairmen of their national bar associations will have the opportunity, in a plenary meeting, to debate the findings of the steering committees who have prepared this congress.

During the formal closing session, to which all Brussels lawyers are welcome, a declaration of intent will be signed in the presence of a European keynote speaker.

Thereafter Patrick A. Dillen and Pierre Scullier, presidents of the Brussels Bar, invite you to a walking dinner of regional Brussels specialities and an after party with a view of the Brussels skyline.

Brussels - Capital of Europe

On Saturday 2 June, the foreign congress attendees and steering committee members will have the chance to discover Brussels, the Belgian capital and heart of Europe, during a fascinating road trip.
