AIJA 59th International Young Lawyers’ Congress


The 2021 AIJA Congress will take place both in-person in Zurich – and for the first time, with a virtual option through a custom-made online platform. With this first ever hybrid Congress, AIJA aims to create an even stronger sense of community across its membership by providing easy access to networking and high-quality content.

The theme of this year’s congress is “Innovation: Exploring tomorrow’s legal world”. Our partner Jens Rügenhagen is involved in the academy program as “Academic Coordinator”.

Furthermore, Valerio Scollo (GSK Stockmann in Luxembourg) will be speaker in the session “Technology Transforming Tradition: Fintech Innovation in Banking and Capital Markets” on 26 August starting at 10.00 am.

GSK Stockmann also supports the AIJA Congress as platinum sponsor.

AIJA is the only global association dedicated to lawyers and in-house counsel under the age of 45. Since 1962, AIJA has provided outstanding international opportunities for young lawyers to network, learn and develop.
