Welcome Message

It is a great pleasure and honour for us to host the 29th RIAD Congress on 7-8 November 2019 in Berlin, Germany, and celebrate with you the 50th anniversary of our Association: for half a century, RIAD has been advocating affordable, high-quality and uncomplicated access to justice! This event will bring together RIAD Members, Lawyers, Brokers, Academics, Ministries, Students and Consumers from around the world. Our theme for the 2019 Congress is Collective Redress and its importance for our industry and partners. At the time of the Congress the European Union will have new legislation on Collective Redress which Member States will have to transpose into national law and users will have to adapt to. We want to learn and discover how Collective Redress functions in other jurisdictions and expect this programme to be filled with information that is most relevant to our community. As always, the RIAD Congress is also the opportunity to find out about the latest developments in legal protection.

With your presence and participation at the RIAD Congress 2019, we will continue the networking and knowledge sharing in the Legal Protection Community.
