The International Association of Young Lawyers (AIJA) chose The Hague for its Half-Year May Conference, which ran from 24 to 27 May.
The 4-day event took place at the Amare Convention Centre, house for the Arts Education and Culture in the heart of The Hague.
Under the topic ‘Working Together Towards Global Justice’, young lawyers from around the world discussed Human Rights and the growing importance of ESG in international business and law.
“As The City of Peace and Justice, and the international home of Human Rights there can be nowhere more appropriate for young lawyers to gather than The Hague,” comments Bas Schot, Head of The Hague & Partners Convention Bureau. “We are delighted to welcome these young and dynamic delegates to our city. They have an opportunity to learn and network, whilst taking part in an incredible programme and seeing everything The Hague has to offer. In fact, I am particularly excited to see that the conference will include the AIJA Triathlon for Human Rights – a truly inspiring physical challenge to sit alongside the mental challenge of the wider event.”
