Mini webinar International Commercial Courts and Jurisdiction

On 8 January 2021 we hosted a mini webinar on International Commercial Courts and Jurisdiction, as part of our ERC Building EU Civil Justice project.

In recent years international commercial courts have been established in a significantnumber of countries in Europe and across the world. An important aspect in attracting international commercial cases is how international jurisdiction rules are framed. ERC project member Georgia Antonopoulou is writing her PhD research on international commercial courts and presented on how a wide casting of the jurisdictional net influences the caseload of international commercial courts. Discussant was Caroline Lasthaus, PhD candidate at Bucerius Law School, Hamburg, who also conducts research on international commercial courts.

The presentations were very interesting and appreciated by the around 45 participants in the webinar and led to fruitful discussions.

Several members of the ERC team (Georgia Antonopoulou, Xandra Kramer and Erlis Themeli) together with other members of the private law department (in particular Alina Ontanu, Marta Kolacz and Priskila Penasthika) supervised the Erasmus moot team competing in the private international law Pax Moot organized by Sciences Po Paris. The elimination round took place at the ICC in Paris on 22 May 2018 and the Erasmus team made it to the finals. Congratulations to our mooties (FLTR) Emma Ustunalp, Benedicte Mourisse, Despoina Mouridi (lead counsel in Paris), and Melvin Hanswijk!

The problem concerned a climate change case adressing a range of complex transnational litigation issues. The final round will take place at the Peace Peace in the Hague on 1 June 2018.
