The Geopolitics of Law in Latin America: Transnational Litigation and Investment Arbitration

Presented by the Program on International Organizations, Law and Diplomacy 

Wednesday, April 4, 2018
10:00 - 11:50 am
American University Washington College of Law
Room N104, Warren Building

Large money judgments may depend on qualitative assessments of foreign legal systems as a whole. Both transnational litigation and investor-state arbitration require adjudicators to decide on the fitness of foreign law at certain points. This presentation will critically discuss the evidence available for assessing Latin American legal systems in those contexts.

Registration is free but required.
