The next Journal of Private International Law Conference will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from 3-5 August 2017. We are now issuing a call for papers on any aspect of private international law. Abstracts of a maximum of 500 words should be sent to email@example.com by 15 November 2016.
Professor Paul Beaumont, one of the lead organisers of this conference (and previous conferences at Aberdeen, Birmingham, New York, Milan, Madrid and Cambridge), said “This conference comes at a particularly important time, with the developments in private international law like the draft Hague Judgments Convention, the revised Brussels IIa Regulation, the Experts’ groups in the Hague on surrogacy and on facilitating exportability of family agreements on custody, access and maintenance and as the full implications of the Brexit vote in the EU Referendum come to be understood. The conference is the leading opportunity for private international law academics of all levels of seniority from around the world to gather together to advance our subject.”
Speakers will not have to pay a registration fee for the conference but will be expected to fund their own travel expenses and accommodation costs. In addition, speakers will be expected to submit the finalised version of their articles for consideration for publication in the Journal of Private International Law in the first instance.
