Tulane Journal of International & Comparative Law Symposium

March 21, 2011

The Tulane Journal of International and Comparative Law is holding a day-long Symposium on March 25, 2011. The event is entitled "The European Union 20 Years After Maastricht--Transatlantic Perspectives" and will analyze the E.U. in a comparative and transatlantic context. Several factors justify this approach. First, the United States and the European Union are partners in what is likely to remain for the foreseeable future one of the most important trade relationships of our global economy; second, the E.U. seems to be growing into an equal (and potentially even dominant) partner within this relationship; and third, Europe is set to influence more strongly not just the economic but also the wider political and legal landscape beyond its borders.


To cover at least some of these complex issues, the symposium will be organized into four panels, which will touch upon the following themes:


Panel 1 - Transatlantic Trade

Panel 2 - Currency and Financial Crisis: E.U. and U.S. Approaches

Panel 3 - Models of Multileveled Governance

Panel 4 - The E.U. as a Player in a Multipolar World


The Journal has obtained CLE approval from the Louisiana State Bar Association. For additional information, please see the conference program, which also includes   general information about times and locations for each session.
