A Conversation on Comparative Family Law *CLE*
9:30 am - 5:30 pm
Scholars with different legal backgrounds (common law and civil law) and radically different geographic interests (Middle-East, Asia, Latin America, Europe and North America) will conceptualize the field of comparative family law as well as examine its practical consequences in various legal contexts. Participants will address the intimate connection between family law, sovereignty and governance across different legal regimes, the way family law reflects and signals the changes prompted by globalization and how family law receives and reacts to the challenges created by international trade regimes, international human rights regimes and global migrations.
