U.S.-Russia: Comparative Legal Perspectives Series — Cross-border Insolvency & Transnational Commercial Law

Thursday, March 2, 2017 | 9:00 am – 10:30 am | LAW 370

The Honorable Sidney B. Brooks (ret.) will lead a panel of bankruptcy and commercial law experts. A 90-minute program on cross-border insolvency law and transnational commercial law intrinsic in an international bankruptcy case. Despite the title, it is interesting because it is not just bankruptcy; it is also jurisdiction, civil procedure, access to the American court system, cooperation and communication between and among judges in different countries working on the same case, and managing local law and foreign law when they clash in a cross-border environment. The program is free and open to students and the interested public.

This program series was initiated in 2015 between the University of Denver Sturm College of Law and Russia’s Moscow State University. It gathers experts, academics, and students from both countries to present and discuss on international and comparative legal topics via a Skype’d conference call.
