The University of Missouri School of Law will host the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Comparative Law on Thursday, October 17, and Saturday, October 19, 2019, entitled “Comparative law and International Dispute Resolution Processes.” This call includes works-in-progress as well as panel proposals.
Comparative law has long been an integral part of the international dispute resolution process, regardless of whether the matter involves litigation, arbitration, mediation, conciliation or negotiation. However, scholars have seldom focused on the comparative element, preferring instead to analyze various issues as a matter of public or private international law. While it is important to consider dispute resolution as a reflection of international law, that perspective does not answer all relevant questions. The American Society of Comparative Law’s 2019 annual program seeks to delve more deeply into how comparative law operates formally and informally, visibly and invisibly, publicly and privately, in cases involving cross-border dispute resolution.
