We are just as concerned as you are about the current global situation. Nonetheless, we are cautiously optimistic that our conference in June can go ahead as planned. At this time, therefore, we will not cancel the conference and look forward to seeing you in Vienna in June 2020.

The Women in Law team will monitor the situation as it unfolds and take all relevant precautions should they become necessary. We will inform you immediately of any possible changes to the Women in Law Conference and the Justitia Awards Ceremony.
