Areas of law:


The  online conference will address practical issues when planning cross-border successions, in particular:
  • Recent case law
    After nearly five years of practical experience with the EU Succession Regulation recent (CJEU) case law as well as highlights and pitfalls of the Regulation will be explained.

  • Reserved portion and (implied) choice of law
    The EU Succession Regulation allows to choose the applicable law implicitly. Does the validity of the implied choice depend on the validity of the legal act from which it is inferred? Participants will discuss practical cases.

  • Digital legacy
    What happens to your online accounts and digital assets when you die? The conference will address the issues of digital legacy when drafting a last will and post mortem. A workshop will enable participants to explore crucial issues of digital legacy.

  • Cross-border use of public documents within the EU
    The new Regulation 2016/1191 and first experiences will be presented.

  • Cross-border inheritance and third states
    Cross-border inheritance issues in relation to third states, including bilateral treaties and international conventions, will be analysed.
