14th Annual Conference on European Tort Law

From April 9 to April 11, 2015, the 14th Annual Conference on European Tort Law will be held in Vienna. The Conference will provide practitioners and academics alike with the opportunity to learn about the most significant tort law developments in Europe in 2014. Experts from across the continent will present highlights from their contributions to the Yearbook, European Tort Law 2014, which will be published in autumn 2015. An overview of developments in EU law will also be provided and a concluding summary will identify and assess the most important emerging trends.

The Conference will begin on Thursday evening (April 9, 2015) with an opening lecture by Simon Whittaker (Opting into Tort), who, due to unforeseen circumstances, was unable to deliver this lecture at the 2014 Conference. The Conference will conclude with a special session on "Dispersed, Low-Value Losses" on Saturday morning (April 11, 2015) with lectures by Georg Kodek, Hans-J├╝rgen Ahrens, Anton Fagan and Franziska Weber.

The Conference will provide ample opportunity for discussion and debate, both in the formal proceedings and during the breaks.
