The Geneva Digital Law Alumni & Career Forum is part of our 2022 Geneva Digital Law Summer School. The goal of the Forum is to bring together (virtually) our global community of alumni and to connect it with the 2022 Summer School participants so that students can learn and interact with our alumni.

The distinguished speakers who are all alumni of our Summer School will talk about their career path since their participation in our Summer School and discuss how the Summer School has contributed to their professional development and to their activities. They will also present their current Digital Law activities, their insights on substantive Digital Law issues and future challenges. 

The Forum will start with a plenary session in the course of which each speaker will have 15 minutes to make their presentation. In the second part, we will organize parallel online sessions in order to have the opportunity to chat more informally and share thoughts and career tips with the participants. The Forum is designed in priority for alumni of our Digital Law Summer School who will have priority for the participation (space is limited).
