Map and Directions


Building on successful recent IAFL conferences for younger delegates, this 1.5 day conference is taking place on the Balearic island of Ibiza, Spain. 

Target Audience

The conference is open to all and is not primarily designed for IAFL Fellows, but rather for individuals who practice in the European Chapter jurisdictions and who are thinking about applying for fellowship and want to get a bit more of a feel for the IAFL, or those who anticipate applying in the next few years, and who want to get to know some IAFL Fellows before they do so. 

IAFL and the IAFL European Chapter particularly hope to welcome attendees from continental European countries which are currently under and un-represented within the IAFL and younger potential new fellows. The conference will be informative, and a great networking opportunity for up and coming family lawyers from across Europe in fun and friendly surroundings. 

Conference Hotel

IAFL has reserved a limited number of rooms at the Sol Beach House Hotel. Rooms can be booked until 30th September 2022, and are offered on a first come first served basis. The rates are €130 for single occupancy and €140 for double occupancy, per room, per night, and are inclusive of VAT (currently 10%, subject to change) and buffet breakfast. Rates do not include city tax (€3.30 per person per night, exclusive of VAT). Cancellations can be made without charge up until 12th September 2022. Cancellations made after 12 September 2022 will result in a full stay penalty charge of the total cost of the booking (including tax).  In the event of no shows, (non-arrival on the day of your booking), the same penalty will be applicable.  Rooms may be sold out prior to this date. Any queries about hotel reservations should be sent to
