The international scientific symposium follows the long tradition of autumn scientific conferences held regularly in the High Tatras since the first half of the 1970s.

In accordance with the tradition, the symposium is organised in cooperation with the Institute of State and Law of the Czech Academy of Sciences and the Institute of State and Law of the Slovak Academy of Sciences.

The symposium aims to connect legal theory and practice, as it invites the participation of both members of the academic community as well as professionals from the relevant legal practices, bank representatives and delegates of the state authorities and government.

The coordinators of the symposium aim to reflect the relevant legislative changes in the national, European and international legal environment in the symposium’s programme.

Every year, the organizers of the international symposium try to reflect on fundamental legislative changes in the domestic legislation as well as in the international and European legal area. In recent months, among other important topics, the following areas of scientific and legislative issues have resonated, while the organizers have decided to pay detailed attention:

  1. The potential of arbitration for the resolution of commercial disputes
  2. Current challenges in the field of commercial law and bankruptcy law
  3. 2024 – the year of artificial intelligence? 

The aim of the symposium is to present original ideas, opinions, information and the results of the scientific research within the scope of the projects APVV-19-0424 Innovative corporation: intra-corporate trasformations, digital challenges and the rise of artificial intelligence, and APVV-21-0336 Analysis of Judicial Decisions using Artificial Intelligence.

The aim of the symposium is also to create a possibility for a wider discussion regarding the relevant issues of legal theory and practice and an area for informal meetings and discussions.
