Time: 1:30 - 1:20pm
Venue: British Institute of International and Comparative Law, Charles Clore House, 17 Russell Square, London WC1B 5JP
The last decade has seen a number of important legislative developments in the field of European Private International Law and Cross-Border Litigation, including the Rome I-III Regulations, the Brussels I (Recast) and Brussels II bis Regulations, the Succession Regulation, and other instruments in the area of civil procedure. As these legislative initiatives were introduced at different stages and aimed at different objectives, the question is whether they constitute a coherent legal framework, with common legal concepts, and fostered the development of common values and principles of conflict of laws and jurisdictions, or whether they need consolidation or even a new structure.
The aim of the conference is to assess the existing EU Private International Law framework and reflect on ways of its future evolution.
This event is convened by Dr Eva Lein, British Institute of International and Comparative Law and Professor Stavros Brekoulakis, CCLS, Queen Mary University of London.
