A Message from the IAWJ President and Hostess of the 2018 Biennial Conference:
My Esteemed Colleagues and Friends,
I´d like to invite you to attend the 14th Biennial Conference of the IAWJ, and meet once again with women judges from around the world to exchange knowledge, experiences, jurisprudence, and wisdom, as well as to strengthen ties of friendship. The Argentinian Women Judges looks forward to welcoming women judges from countries with widely varying legal systems, cultures, religions and histories, knowing that this global movement to which we all belong is unique — and allows us to work together for the human rights of women.
The theme of the Conference is “Building bridges between women judges of the world.” We are sure that this theme will lead to enriching, stimulating, comprehensive discussions. while providing us an excellent opportunity to contribute to improving justice systems, making them more effective, efficient and independent.
The Conference Planning Committee is working hard to ensure a successful conference and to welcome you to the City of Buenos Aires. Known as both the “Queen of the Rio de la Plata” and the”Paris of Latin America,” Buenos Aires is a cosmopolitan city, rich in history, culture, architecture, music and gastronomy.
In addition to the educational program and social events, we intend to give each participant the chance to get to know the City, visit its museums and shopping malls and take part in a typical “Milonga Porteña”. Every afternoon, at the end of the educational sessions, you will have the chance to take free tango lessons!!! So, pack your bag, don´t forget your dancing shoes and be ready to open your heart to the sights and sounds of a City and a country that awaits you with open arms.
Over the next few months, we will be reaching out to all members of the IAWJ with updates on conference activities. If you have any questions, we encourage you send an email to the IAWJ at the following addresses:
You will be welcomed!
