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.

On 12 March 2019, Georgia Antonopoulou presented at the Max Planck Guest Forum her research on European international commercial courts. The Guest Forum at the Max Planck Institute for International, European and Regulatory Procedural Law offers guests the opportunity to present their current research and discuss their ideas with other guests and researchers of the Institute. During her presentation, Georgia focused on the recently established Netherlands Commercial Court (NCC) and the anticipated German Chambers for International Commercial Disputes (Kammern für Internationale Handelssachen). She presented the provisions regulating the jurisdiction of these courts aiming to assess how accessible they are to interested parties.
