Rome II at 10: Looking back and ahead

Event Details

Time: 16.30-19.15 (Registration from 16.00)
Event followed by a drinks reception

Venue: British Institute of International and Comparative Law, Charles Clore House, 17 Russell Square, London WC1B 5JP

It's time to celebrate 10 years since Rome II came into force. Its application over the last 10 years has given rise to numerous interesting legal and practical issues as the Courts have started to grapple with applying a novel legal regime. Specialist practitioners and academics from the UK and Europe will look at the highlights to-date and look forward to issues that are likely to arise in the coming years. As Rome II will be replicated in the UK post-Brexit, the regime remains crucial for courts and litigators.
