Upcoming XLNC Sping Conference | Brussels 2020

The XLNC Spring Conference 2020 will be held at The Hotel (yes, that is its name, and it is the same hotel that US President Barack Obama stayed in when he visited the city) on the Boulevard de Waterloo, the high-end fashion-shopping street of Brussels, close to the European Parliament and Commission.

Brussels, capital of Belgium, principal seat of the Belgian Royal Family, and capital of the European Union, is a remarkably small and easygoing city for all its importance. Its unique character comes from the coexistence of French and Flemish cultures.

Now home to many different nationalities, this mix has added a cosmopolitan flavour to the urban atmosphere. The city’s vibrant atmosphere is further enhanced by picturesque medieval streets, lively squares, stately boulevards, spacious parks, cozy cafes and a dynamic cultural life, as well as a clutch of world-class museums and art galleries, and quirkier sights, such as the Atomium. You will find here a city buzzing with life. A metropolitan with a historic heart.

For this event, we are delighted to have Prof Alexander Türk from King’s College London as our keynote speaker. Prof Alexander Türk is Professor of Law and Vice- Dean for Education at the Dickson Poon School of Law at King’s. In the US, Professor Türk is also a Visiting Professor of Georgetown University (Washington, DC), Pepperdine University (CA), and Iowa University (IA). He studied history (MA) and law (first and second state exams) in Augsburg, Germany. He obtained an LLM in European Law at the College of Europe in Bruges, Belgium (1994- 95). He also holds a PhD from the University of London. Professor Türk’s principal research interests are in the field of European Union Law, and in particular its constitutional and administrative law, on which he has published widely. Given his expertise, we have asked him to provide some commentary on Brexit (although it is still difficult to tell at this stage if it will have happened by then or not).

We invite XLNC members from all over the world to join us and meet with one another, to exchange technical knowledge and expertise, while also exploring opportunities for future joint business projects.

Besides, this might be an excellent opportunity to stock up on Brussels’ famous chocolate and sample its world-famous beers. Registrations will open shortly for this event and all members should receive an invitation directly. Benefit from the Early Bird Discount by registering prior to 31 January 2020.
