The MU School of Law recently acted as host for the American Society of Comparative Law’s 2019 Annual Meeting, welcoming 120 participants from 20 countries for three days of discussion and debate. The theme of the meeting was “Comparative Law and International Dispute Resolution Processes,” which allowed in-depth analysis of how comparative law affects cross-border litigation, arbitration and mediation. Concurrent panelists and works-in-progress participants also addressed other areas of law, including comparative law and religion, comparative administrative and constitutional law, and comparative law and populism. MU faculty members moderated ten of the twenty different panels that were convened during the three-day event. Papers from the plenary sessions, including a new article on comparative law and online dispute resolution by MU’s Professor Amy J. Schmitz, will be published in the spring 2020 edition of the Journal of Dispute Resolution.
