In March 2016 I had the great pleasure of volunteering for an AIJA seminar in Valencia (Spain). The event was organized by the Competition Commission, and examined Competition Law Developments in Technology, Media and Telecommunications.


During three intensive days full of working panels and cultural events, I met numerous young lawyers whose professional attitude and willingness to share their knowledge, as well as openness to other cultures and welcoming approach, made a great impression on me.


The AIJA offers its members a chance to participate in a vast variety of events on diverse topics, from Business Law to Human Rights. Without any doubt, every conference, congress, or seminar, is a great opportunity to broaden ones professional network, deepen legal knowledge, and have a great time during the social activities.
