International Business Litigation – Hamburg

The American Enterprise Institute and the Council on Public Policy present Transatlantic Law Forum: The Business of Law at Bucerius Law School in Hamburg, Germany, Sept. 3-4, 2009.

Business litigation in national and international courts is a business, and it is increasingly international. The judicial decisions and doctrines that govern the field are the subject of torrents of law review articles. But we know much less about the institutional aspects of business litigation–the organization of international courts and the strategies, incentives, and organization of corporate interests and their lawyers. How and to what extent do those interests attempt to shape the legal environment, and with what results? How do private corporate litigants fare in European and American courts–and what should we expect for future business litigation?
