Wasserstein Hall, Milstein Conference Center, Harvard Law School
The spring of 2019 will be a pivotal moment in EU history with Brexit becoming a reality in March 2019. Furthermore, European elections take place in May 2019, which makes the Conference an opportune moment to reflect on the successes and failures of the EU institutions over the past five years. The Conference will focus on the digitalization of the economy and whether the goals for the Digital Single Market set by the Juncker Commission have been reached.
The Conference will explore certain challenges posed within this broader framework and will analyze the impact of these developments on EU-US relations through four panel discussions on (1) Brexit, (2) Banking & Finance, (3) Antitrust and (4) the Digital Economy.
The Harvard European Law Association (HELA) is an organization of Harvard J.D.s, LL.M.s, and S.J.D.s of all nationalities interested in European and international legal and political issues.

In the past, HELA has invited members of European institutions, practicing lawyers, and academics engaged in the study of European integration to come and speak at Harvard Law School. HELA also works to create opportunities for exchange among the Euro-curious at the Law School and within the rest of the Harvard and Boston community.
