"RESTATING U.S. LAW ON INTERNATIONAL LAW SUBJECTS"
GEORGE A. BERMANN
Loyola's 2011 distinguished Wing-Tat Lee Lecturer is Professor George A. Bermann from Columbia University School of Law, where he is the Jean Monnet Professor of European Union Law, the Walter Gellhorn Professor of Law, and the Director of the European Legal Studies Center. Professor Bermann is the Chief Reporter for the ALI Restatement of the US Law of International Commercial Arbitration. His topic will be Restating U.S. Law on International Law Subjects. Professor Bermann will be dealing with the tension that inevitably arises in drafting a Restatement of U.S. law that pertains to an international field. He will consider the challenge of striking the proper balance between the value of preserving solidly established U.S. positions, and the need to provide a measure of innovation to enhance the international system of which we are a part.
A reception will follow the lecture.
