The Journal of International Law and Politics is pleased to invite you to the eighteenth annual Herbert Rubin And Justice Rose Luttan Rubin International Law Symposium, entitled Tug of War: The Tension Between Regulation and International Cooperation. The symposium is co-sponsered by the NYU Center for Transnational Litigation and Commercial Law and the NYU International Law Society.
Tug of War: The Tension Between Regulation and International Cooperation will be an all day event featuring several prominent practitioners and academics, as well as former U.K. Supreme Court Justice Lord Collins of Mapesbury and Judge Diane P. Wood of the United States Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit.
The symposium will examine how U.S. courts balance our regulatory interest against the need for international cooperation in the context of transnational litigation. While a balance is critical throughout the litigation process, we will feature three panels that focus on situations where this tension is most controversial: (1) forum non conveniens dismissal, (2) the application of foreign law, and (3) judgment enforcement and recognition. With each panel, we will question whether the status quo is working and the extent to which it can be improved through changes in practices and procedures. After the panel discussions, Lord Lawrence Collins of Mapesbury will speak on the effect of corruption in foreign courts.
The tentative agenda is available here.
CLE credits will be offered. To register, visit http://nyulaw.imodules.com/
