Erlis Themeli was invited as a guest lecturer at the Moscow State Law University (MSAL) from 11 to 19 May 2019. This invitation was supported by an Erasmus+ grant of the European Union. Erlis delivered a series of lectures on international commercial courts. The audience showed considerable interest in the topic and in particular on its significance for the Russian legal landscape. Erlis had also the possibility to have meetings with colleagues from the MSAL, which will serve as a collaboration bridge for the future.
