18th Annual Conference on European Tort Law

From April 25 to April 27 2019, the 18th Annual Conference on European Tort Law will be held in Vienna. The Conference provides practitioners and academics alike with the opportunity to learn about the most significant tort law developments in Europe in 2018.

Experts from each of the many jurisdictions represented will present selected highlights from their contributions to the European Tort Law Yearbook, an annual volume which provides a comprehensive overview of legislative and judicial developments in tort law throughout Europe during the preceding year (the Yearbook ‘European Tort Law 2018’ is going to be published in autumn 2019.) The national reports will be followed by an overview of EU law developments and a comparative, concluding summary, which will critically assess the most important trends and issues to emerge.

In addition, Saturday's Special Session will be dedicated to the topic of "Human Rights Violations in Global Supply Chains". More information as well as the detailed programme is available on the conference website
