The Influence of Common Law and Civil Law Traditions on the Work of the International Court of Justi

14th November 2013

Ever since the seminal study by Sir Hersch Lauterpacht on Anglo-American and Continental schools in international law, international lawyers are confronted with different legal traditions in the course of their practice. The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is in a unique position to take into account various legal traditions and integrate them into a uniform body of international legal rules. The event will take a closer look at this interaction and evaluate its influence on the case law of the ICJ.

This event will be followed by a reception.
