During the Spring Meeting a subject of current interest relating to public international law or private international law is discussed. For this meeting two or sometimes three speakers are invited to give a brief introduction on the chosen subject. This is followed by a debate. Usually, this meeting is held in The Hague during the evening hours. In 2020, the Spring Meeting took place online, in light of COVID-19. Often, English is spoken to render the meeting accessible to a broader audience.
