We look forward to seeing you soon in Berlin!
Our 29th Congress is about to start on 7 and 8 November 2019! We are very excited about welcoming you in Berlin and look forward to lively and topical discussions with you.
We hope that you are just as impressed as we are with the incredible number of high-calibre speakers and experts from around the world. They will share with us their ideas and scrutinise the latest developments in collective redress and class actions: for instance, in Germany the procedure against VW in the Dieselgate case started and the German Musterfeststellungsklage is finally being tested. Moreover, you will find out how class actions work in the US and Australia and how they are financed.
We think that our congress theme is highly topical and that hardly anyone who deals with access to justice can escape the discussions on collective redress and class actions nowadays. Therefore, we will raise fundamental questions and cannot wait to discuss these with you!
Simon Warr (RIAD President) and Antje Fedderke (RIAD Secretary General)
