The Conference will provide practitioners and academics alike with the opportunity to learn about the most significant tort law developments in Europe in 2013. Experts from across the continent will present highlights from their contributions to the Yearbook, European Tort Law 2013, which will be published after the Conference. 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 begins on Thursday evening (April 24, 2014) with an opening lecture by Simon Whittaker (Oxford) on 'Opting into Tort'. It will conclude with a special session on Cyber Torts on Saturday morning (April 26, 2014).
Throughout the Conference, there will be ample opportunity for discussion and debate, both in the formal proceedings and during the breaks.
