Global PIL Book Launch
- Lucia Bizikova, Professor Horatia Muir Watt and Agatha Brandao de Oliveira
The case-book was originally inspired by Professor Horatia Muir Watt's courses in private international law. Witnessing the impact of globalisation on private international law, the cases in the book reflect on the ever-increasing gap separating the conventional presentation of private international law and the contemporary changes that have induced transformations in transnational adjudication and law-making. With over 50 contributors from diverse cultural origins and disciplinary horizons, the book is seen as both an academic and pedagogical experiment.
The evening celebrating this novel contribution to the legal field was a grand success, with invited speakers Paul Lagarde and Antoine Garapon, presenting on their thoughts of the structure and shifts in private international law against the 'global turn.' Librairie Pedone was packed with excitement and interest as the event had brought in over 50 guests from all parts of the world.
