Conferences
The PEOPIL conferences offer a great opportunity to network and to share knowledge. Members enjoy discount and participants who are new at PEOPIL are offered free membership for the rest of the year if they sign up.

Apart from the Annual Conference in autumn, we co-organise an Aviation Conference with McGill University on an bi-annual basis and smaller conferences are organised by our EEG Chairs.
Please have a look on our YouTube Channel to get an impression.
We hope to see you soon at one of the upcoming events!

2023

Annual Conference 2023

29 & 30 September, Dublin

On 29 and 30 September, delegates from 24 jurisdictions met at the Law Society of Ireland in Dublin for PEOPIL’s Annual Conference. During these two days, the most renowned personal injury lawyers and academics received exceptional education from conference speakers on emerging areas of law and litigation, had numerous networking opportunities and developed comradery with their colleagues. This event would not be possible without our sponsors – Kreindler & Kreindler, DEKA Chambers, Outer Temple Chambers and Doyle Dennis, to whom we extend our sincere thanks.

AAJ/PEOPIL Birth Injury and Medical Negligence Seminar

Joint Occupational Health/Workplace Accidents and RTA Conference

15 & 16 June, Thessaloniki

In the beautiful and historical town of Thessaloniki, capital of Greek Macedonia, the perfectly organised PEOPIL Occupational Health & RTA Conference could be nothing more than another successful event. Highly ranked and accredited in their field professors, attorneys and technical experts, mainly from Europe but also from other parts of the world, formed a very strong team of panelists and speakers, while all participants were warmly welcomed by the Athens and Thessaloniki Bar Association representatives, as per the well known Greek hospitality.

After a pause of over two years due to covid the long-awaited conference was indeed a great success.  When we started the McGill /PEOPIL aviation seminar collaboration back in 2008 in Toulouse, France we were 17 participants, including speakers. That seminar included a much appreciated visit to Airbus and their 380 assembly plant.

New Lawyers Group Conference

Conference for Central & Eastern European Lawyers

21 & 22 October, Bucharest

The Conference for Central and Eastern European Lawyers in Bucharest has certainly been a success for PEOPIL. An achievement which would not have been possible without the invaluable support of our Romanian colleagues who made every effort to make this event a unique example of lawyers exchanging knowledge and creating new opportunities.

Annual Conference 2022

16 & 17 September, Copenhagen

This years’ Annual Conference was certainly one for the books: we welcomed many new members to our organisation, listened to inspiring and informative presentations from lawyers from all over Europe and beyond, elected new Executive and General Board members and… got to know each other even better!
