we would like to inform you about the Young FIDE Seminar which will take place as an online event in collaboration with Leiden University on 12 May 2021 from 10:00 to 13:00 (CET). The Seminar brings together junior EU law scholars and practitioners to discuss the three topics of the main FIDE Congress.
During the Young FIDE Seminar – which was previously called the ‘PhD Seminar’ – PhD students and Young EU Law practitioners will present papers on the three FIDE topics. Subsequently, expert panels will comment on these papers and facilitate a discussion with the participants. Furthermore, three ‘young rapporteurs’ have been asked to take part in the discussions during the Seminar. The three young rapporteurs will also report back to the respective panels at the FIDE 2021 Congress, and contribute to the fourth Congress volume to be published after the FIDE 2021 Congress. This year, Prof. Sacha Prechal, Judge at the CJEU, will deliver the opening lecture during the Young FIDE Seminar.
Please find the full programme of the Seminar here. Registration for the online Young FIDE Seminar is possible here. Further information on the Young FIDE Seminar can be found on our website as well as in the ‘Insight’ on the Young FIDE Seminar that has been published by FIDE Media’s Partner EU Law Live.
Furthermore, we attach the FIDE Weekend Edition that was published by EU Law Live dedicated to the history and role of FIDE with contributions from Morten Rasmussen, José Luís da Cruz Vilaça on FIDE, as well as of The FIDE 2020 Board on the organisation of the FIDE Congress. The Weekend Edition can also be accessed here.
We are looking forward to an insightful Young FIDE event and we will of course keep you informed about further developments concerning the Young FIDE Seminar as well as the FIDE Congress in The Hague November 2021!
