Map and Directions


Every 12-18 months the IAFL European Chapter organises a 1.5 day Introduction to European Family Law conference which is aimed at introducing potential new Fellows to the Academy. Previous conferences have been informative, enjoyable and well received, and provide fabulous networking opportunities for delegates.

Target Audience
This year, the IAFL European Chapter hopes to welcome family lawyers from some of the jurisdictions which are currently under and un-represented, so this conference is being organised on an invitation only basis. 

Education Program 
The conference will provide an overview of a variety of topics of European Family Law, including:

    • Brussels II Recast, what’s new compared to Brussels II Bis?
    • Child abduction during times of war
    • Interim measures in family law proceedings in Europe - a practical approach
    • Presentation by Michael Allum, winner of the 2023 IAFL European Chapter Young Lawyers’ Award
    • A new EC Proposal on the recognition of parenthood in the EU

The program will start at 13:30 on 15 November and end at 16:45 on 16 November


The IAFL European Chapter gratefully acknowledges the support of the meeting sponsor.
