Professor Franco Ferrari, director of the Center for Transnational Litigation, Arbitration and Commercial Law, has been invited to teach a course on private international law at the prestigious Hague Academy of International Law.

Founded in 1923, the Hague Academy is a center for research and teaching in public and private international law, with emphasis on further scientific and advanced studies of the legal aspects of international relations. Because the Academy does not have a permanent teaching staff, its scientific body, the Curatorium, invites academics, practitioners, diplomats, and others to give courses in the form of lectures.

The summer courses take place over six weeks, with private international law running during the second three-week session from the end of July until mid-August. The lectures are usually published in the Collected Courses of the Academy of International Law.

Ferrari joins other distinguished NYU Law faculty who have taught courses at the Hague Academy, including José Alvarez, Herbert and Rose Rubin Professor of International Law; Charles L. Denison Professor of Law Emeritus and Judicial Fellow Theodor Meron; Martin Lipton Professor of Law Linda Silberman; the late Thomas Franck, Murry and Ida Becker Professor of Law Emeritus, and the late Andreas Lowenfeld, Herbert and Rose Rubin Professor of International Law Emeritus, in addition to the center’s November scholar-in-residence Peter Trooboff.
