Description

“The New European Choice-of-Law Revolution: Lessons for the United States?”
A One-Day Conference at Duke Law School, February 8, 2008
Organized by the Center for International and Comparative Law at Duke Law School, in collaboration with Tulane Law Review

In a globalizing world of interdependent legal systems, determining which law applies to international private transactions is crucial. Yet choice of law, the field that deals with these determinations, is in a crisis in the US. By contrast, it is thriving in Europe.
After the American choice-of-law revolution in the sixties and seventies, are we now observing a European choice-of-law revolution? Can European developments now incite reforms and rekindle excitement in the US, as earlier American developments incited reforms in Europe? Or are European developments a model of how things should not be done?
Leading experts from Europe and from the United States will come to Duke for a one-day conference to discuss these and other question. The topics to be discussed will include comparative contract, tort, family and corporate law as well as issues of methodology, internal and external conflicts, and federalism and market regulation.

We would like to invite you to participate in this event. Please visit our website at www.law.duke.edu/cicl/choiceoflaw for further information about the conference.

We look forward to seeing you in Durham.
