EARN Meeting Vienna 2022

Vienna, 2022-10-31

After a 2-year break due to Corona, the annual meeting of the EARN network took place live again last weekend. The Austrian partner law firm hba Held Berdnik Astner & Partner Rechtsanwälte GmbH welcomed numerous network members to its centrally located Vienna office with a view of the imposing Votiv Church.

A thematic focus of the two-day meeting was in particular the country-specific regulations on the implementation of the EU Directives on "certain contract law aspects of the provision of digital content" and on "certain contract law aspects of the sale of goods" as well as the EU Restructuring Directive.

Other topics on the agenda included recent court decisions on cross-border cases and "the economic potential and legal challenges of the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the legal system" as well as the further development of the European Business Code.

In general, the participants noted that the cooperation between the network partners had developed pleasingly successfully and agreed that the regular personal exchange was of particular value for cross-border case handling. Preparations for the next EARN annual meeting in 2023 have therefore already begun.
