Croatian Conference on Brussels I

Institute of European and Comparative Law of the University of Rijeka Faculty of Law and the Croatian Comparative Law Association are organising the international conference titled The Brussels I Regulation: Challenges for Croatian Judiciary. The conference program covers the topics concerned with general issues and special heads of jurisdiction under the Brussels I Regulation, with particular emphasis on the new developments and relationships with third countries. The aim of the conference is to offer guidance to Croatian lawyers on how to implement the Regulation provisions as a part of the capacity building for the accession to the EU. Besides, it is intended to provide the lawyers interested in the topic with an insight into some of the recent issues.

The conference is dedicated to one of the most prominent Croatian private international lawyers and scholars Professor Petar Sarcevic to whom the University of Rijeka Faculty of Law is highly indebted for his scientific and teaching contributions throughout his academic career. This conference is intended to be the first in the series of the conferences devoted to specific topics of private international law organised by the Institute.

The conference is to be held on 13 and 14 November 2009 at the Hotel Milenij Grand in Opatija, Croatia.
