Conference cycles at IEE-ULB
Expand your knowledge of European studies through the conference cycles at IEE-ULB. Discover, among others, the Legal Tuesday seminars and our “European Law Tasters”.
IEE-ULB organises conferences and other meetings around European studies. Open to the general public, these events are led by experts. They also provide networking opportunities.
Legal Tuesday conference cycle
This conference cycle proposes seminars that scrutinise various aspects of European Commission policy in the field of competition law, led by high quality professionals from the European institutions and the most important law firms specialised in this area.
For over 30 years, the IEE-ULB has been organising a retraining programme on Community law for anyone with an interest in issues relating to the development of the ‘acquis communautaire’.
Originally organised by Professor Michel Waelbroeck and now by Professors Jean-François Bellis and Denis Waelbroeck, European Competition Law Tuesdays are a forum for discussion around the interventions of different experts.
European Law Tasters
European Law Tasters is a series of conferences initiated by jurists at the IEE-ULB in 2009 to confront current European research in legal matters with the positions of the professional world and those of civil society.
The format consists on early evening (from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm), periodical conferences where two speakers present their points of view on a specific topic of EU law.
After the lectures, the second hours is dedicated to a debate, to allow extensive exchanges with the audience, under the coordination of a moderator. Finally, conversations can continue informally during the cocktail that follows.
The target audience for these conferences are both the academic and professional communities as well as citizens interested in European issues.
