A seminar on “Responsibilities and applicable law according to the new act on Private International Law”, which was organised jointly by the IRZ and the Macedonian Academy of Judges and Public Prosecutors, was held in Skopje on 27 April 2017.

The speakers at the seminar were Professor Dr. Toni Desoski, Skopje, one of the co-authors of the new PIL act, and Professor Dr. Slavko Djordjevic, of the Law Faculty in Kragujevac, a member of the Serbian commission of experts working on the new PIL act in Serbia.

Attending the seminar were judges from the civil law departments of various courts, lawyers and representatives of the Young Lawyers Association. Several case examples were presented at the event, illustrating some of the practical applications of the partly new regulations of the Macedonian law.

The seminar was organised on the occasion of the adoption of the new Macedonian PIL act. This complies with consistent EU harmonisation and convergence with international standards, including the Hague Convention. The new law replaces previous solutions dating from the socialist era.
