Innovative, accessible, multicultural, global, present, and future for the practice of law – all at once. This is Singapore. This is AIJA.
It is a great pleasure to invite you to Singapore for the 60th International Young Lawyers’ Congress.
Well reputed as a hub for Litigation and International, Arbitration, Banking & Finance, International Trade and Shipping, Singapore hosts the largest and most influential law firms in South East Asia. The city is also a well-chosen location for regional headquarters of several international law firms, multiple multinational companies, and their in-house legal teams. It is currently home to offices of nearly half of the top 100 law firms in the world.
Beyond the practice of law, Singapore’s appeal as a destination is unparalleled – with breath-taking venues for academic sessions and social events that mix grandiose views, technological marvels, and green spaces like nowhere else in the world, dining, entertainment, and heritage offerings. Visiting Singapore is visiting the future in real time and feeling how unique the experience is.
The 60th International Young Lawyers’ Congress will bring together AIJA delegates and friends from all over the world for the largest international event dedicated to international young lawyers, providing business and networking opportunities, while visiting one of the most fascinating cities in the world.
In organising this Congress, we would like to give back to AIJA for what AIJA has given to us over the years: the opportunity to develop an international professional network on the one hand, and the opportunity to make friends for life on the other.
We will make sure you enjoy and benefit from a genuine local experience during your stay in Singapore, starting with the Opening Ceremony on Tuesday at one of the Island’s iconic landmarks, the Home Hospitality dinner to taste authentic Singaporean food with local friends, a tropical Day Out and a blossoming Gala Dinner on Friday night.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Singapore in August 2022 for what will certainly be an unforgettable event and a great anniversary in the heart of South East Asia.
