Call for Papers - 7 October – Changes and challenges in cross-border litigation

Call for Papers

This conference, initially planned as a half day, wants to give speakers and attendees the opportunity to reflect on topics that are or could be affected by ‘Brexit’ for better or worse. The focus is on areas of law that are relevant to commercial law such as effects on choice of law in contracts, dispute resolution, banking issues and cross border securities. A comparative viewpoint will be taken to include perspectives from Scotland and England and other European legal systems. The objective is to invite fresh approaches to legal solutions as they have been manifested in European Union legislation that may benefit from rethinking in the light of the June 2016 referendum on the UK’s EU Membership.

Papers are invited including from early career researchers to contribute to a post-referendum debate of current issues in private international law, especially commercial law related aspects.

Please send your abstract of max. 500 words until 10 Sept 2016 to the convenors to either of these email addresses:
