The Law School's newly formed Center for Transnational Litigation and Commercial Law, established to advance the study and practice of business transactions and dispute resolution in a global context, is co-sponsoring a three-day conference at the Verona University School of Law in Verona, Italy, on March 18th through 20th. 

"Conflict of Laws in International Commercial Arbitration" will examine conflict of laws in various contexts, such as jurisdiction, procedure, and adjudication of the merits of a case. The center’s executive director, Franco Ferrari, currently the Inge Rennert Distinguished Visiting Professor of Law at NYU and a professor at Verona University School of Law, will deliver the opening remarks. On March 19, Linda Silberman, Martin Lipton Professor of Law, will join Ferrari to discuss what law should apply to the merits of an international dispute.
