The magic starts on Thursday with a casual get-together reception at the Danish Bar and Law Society.

Copenhagen EYBA 2024 will be magical and adventurous and gives you a unique opportunity to network and spark incredible conversations with young lawyers from across Europe while simply having a marvellous EYBA time in beautiful Copenhagen.

On Friday we focus on the new legal world order. The world is changing, and we need to rethink the way we do legal business, and the challenges this poses for lawyers. Look forward to exciting legal talks and discussions from amazing speakers from global Danish companies who will share their insights, and thought-provoking, boundary-pushing views on the new legal world order. Friday ends with an enchanting reception at Djøf Rooftop with a fantastic view of Copenhagen.

The EYBA  Annual General Meeting will take place on Saturday, and in the afternoon, you are invited to Copenhagen Dreaming where we explore the magic of Copenhagen in true EYBA style. Saturday ends with the big gala dinner, where you will enjoy great dining, social talk and listen to Mekdes, the new voice of the Danish music scene and her mix of R&B and soul music. Simply irresistible.
