On November 2-3, 2012, the Private International Law Interest Group of the American Society of International Law (ASIL) is hosting its conference at Duke Law School, together with the Center for International and Comparative Law, and the Duke Journal of Comparative and International Law. The conference topic goes to the field's foundation: What is Private International Law? Our goal is to push the field forward, which seems mired in its past, unable to reform sufficiently in response to current challenges of globalization. At the same time, we hope to enhance the stature of Private International Law within ASIL at large. Panels will discuss philosophical and theoretical foundations of the field, the goals of the field, its constitutional and democratic aspects, and its interrelation with legal pluralism.
