The Conflict of Laws Scholars Forum

The Conflict of Laws Scholars Forum brings together researchers to discuss work in progress, published papers and current developments on the conflict of laws/private international law or a related subject, to a general audience.

Papers could be on the conflict of laws or private law issues with a cross-border aspect/question (such as a question of choice of law or an issue of enforcement) or on the interface between public and private international law. The events are open to researchers, practitioners and students interested in the conflict of laws/private international law. The events are also intended to reach out to students interested in the subject: current final year LLB students have contributed a short post on their views/thoughts of the papers presented.
