Go On! "Transnational Litigation"

(Go On! is an occasional item on symposia and other events of interest)

From our colleagues Austen Parrish (Southwestern) and Christopher A. Whytock (California-Irvine) comes word of a symposium they're organizing. Entitled Our Courts and the World: Transnational Litigation and Civil Procedure, it's set for Friday, February 3, at Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles, California.
To be discussed:
► Procedural issues arising in transnational civil litigation;
► The degree to which courts are receptive to transnational litigation; and
► Issues related to transnational class actions.
Among the many scheduled speakers are a number of women: Montré D. Carodine (Alabama), Erin O’Hara O’Connor (Vanderbilt), Cassandra Burke Robertson (Case Western), Linda J. Silberman (NYU), Linda Sandstrom Simard (Suffolk), Janet Walker (Osgoode Hall-Toronto), and Rhonda Wasserman (Pittsburgh).
Cosponsors are the American Society of International Law, the Junior International Law Scholars Association, and the International Law Sections of the the Los Angeles County Bar Association and State Bar of California. Proceedings and papers will be published in the Southwestern Journal of International Law.
