2019 ILA Regional Conference in Slovenia is the first ILA conference organized by the ILA Slovene Branch. It will take place in the beautiful seaside resort of Bernardin located between the romantic town of Piran and the Portorož Riviera on the Adriatic coast.
The general theme of the conference is “Migration / international legal regulation” and will thus provide a forum to address and discuss a plethora of challenging questions related to the issue of migration from both the public and private international law lens in a region largely affected by the topic.
Additionally, the conference will offer a myriad of opportunities for discussions on topics covered within the ILA Committees and Study Groups and give them space to advance their work, as well as to network with the leading international law minds from around the world.
Professor Vasilka Sancin
President of the Slovene Branch
As President of the Slovene Branch of the International Law Association, I am delighted to invite you to the first International Law Association Regional Conference to be organized in Slovenia.
From 27 to 30 June 2019, the ILA Regional Conference will bring together leading members of the international legal community to discuss important questions of public and private international law related to the topical issue of migration.
The national Association for International Law for Slovenia was established already in 1959 and in 1995 it became the member of the International Law Association as the Slovene Branch. Our members have been since the beginning actively involved in the work of the ILA Committees and Study Groups, as well as have critically contributed to the development and respect for international law in Slovenia. We see this conference as an opportunity to welcome and host colleagues and friends from around the world in our beautiful country.
Nonetheless, the conference is also an opportunity for all the participants to join debates of numerous specialist committees, listen to panel discussions that feature the most prominent international lawyers, enjoy social functions and relax with a swim in the Adriatic Sea.
If you are not already a member of the International Law Association, I encourage you to join. Benefits extend far beyond discounts that you will receive for this Conference. Across the world, our 60 branches, 22 committees and over 4,300 members offer countless opportunities to further your education and career in international law.
I look forward to welcoming you in Slovenia in June 2019.
