We are delighted to announce the setting up of Forum Conveniens, a forum based at Edinburgh Law School and dedicated to International Private Law (Private International Law). Its base in Edinburgh reflects the distinctive role of Scots law in the development of the subject but at the same time the focus of the Forum is international.
Its goal is to provide a means of bringing together interested parties (including academic lawyers, practitioners, the judiciary, law reformers, and policy makers) for discussion and exchange of ideas.
Presentations will be given by Peter Hay (LQC Lamar Professor of Law Emeritus, Emory University School of Law, Atlanta) and Symeon C Symeonides (Dean Emeritus Alex L Parks Distinguished Chair in Law, Willamette University College of Law, Oregon).
Free, ticketed and open to all. Booking essential.
