EARN Annual Meeting Granada 2023

Granada, 2023-11-01

The Spanish EU Presidency 2023 has chosen the city of Granada to host the meeting of the European Political Community and the informal meeting of the Heads of State and Government on 5 and 6 October, respectively, due to its history, its current centrality and its future as an ideal place to continue advancing the values of the European Union. The location for our EARN Annual Conference 2023 could not have been better chosen for our meeting on 19 to 21 October 2023.

The Spanish partner law firm Medina Cuadros Abogados welcomed almost all of the EARN network members to its offices in the beautiful historic city centre. The subsequent conference in the historic Carmen de la Victoria of the renowned University of Granada was opened by Klaus Jochen Albiez Dohrmann, Catedrático, Civil Law Department, Granada University, with an interesting presentation on the collective practice of the legal profession in Spain, which was followed by a lively discussion and a comparison of country-specific regulations in the partner countries. Traditionally, all participants presented news from case law and legislation, but also on developments in electronic legal transactions in the member states. To summarise, the majority of electronic legal transactions have now been successfully implemented.

The fantastic supporting programme with the highlights of the city and culinary delights perfectly organised by Luis Sánchez Pérez were highly praised and appreciated by all participants. The intensive personal exchange in Granada further strengthened the close relationships between the participants and we are already looking forward to the next EARN annual meeting in Amsterdam in autumn 2024.
