PROGRAMME

PILAGG ROUNDTABLE: DISCUSSING CROSS-BORDER JURISPRUDENCE

14:00-15:00 – Table 1: Cross-border jurisprudence & transforming of private international law

Does Private International Law still have a “raison d’être” as a discipline? Or is it absorbed by global legal pluralism? Could we talk of “the new learning”of Private International Law?

Participants: Antonio Marzal Yetano, Fabien Marchadier, Robert Wai, David Sindres, Jeremy Heymann, Hélène van Lith

 

15:15-16:15 – Table 2: Cross-border jurisprudence & necessity of interdisciplinarity

How can we view the discipline of Private International Law? Is there anything that it could usefully bring to another discipline?

Participants: Jean d’Aspremont, François Licari, Nathalie Najjar, Jérôme Sgard, Gilles Cuniberti, Ugljesa Grusic

 

16:30-17:30 – Table 3: Cross-border jurisprudence & novel teaching methods

What kind of novel experiments can one think of, which would be directly geared towards bringing out global questions in Private International Law? Would a Global Casebook would be useful?

Participants: Fabio Morosini, Christelle Chalas, Etienne Pataut, Filipe Antunes Madeira da Silva, Kellen Trilha, Chris Thomale, Catalina Avasilencei
