The Private Law Consortium
The Private Law Consortium is an annual meeting bringing together scholars from eight leading law schools, including Bar-Ilan Law Faculty, City University of Hong Kong Law School, Durham Law School, Erasmus Law School, Rotterdam, National University of Singapore Law School, Oslo faculty of Law, Trento Law School and Vanderbilt law School. The primary goal of the project is to produce high-quality scholarship by facilitating the exchange of ideas and criticisms in the area of private law. Its secondary goal is to create and maintain a scholarly community committed to the study of private law and to strengthen the ties between the member schools. The consortium supports investigation of all areas of private law, including its traditional main categories of property, contracts, torts, and unjust enrichment, as well as other related topics such as intellectual property, commercial litigation, trusts, and remedies. The consortium aims to further the study of these fields and of private law as a whole and encourages comparative and interdisciplinary work.
