Book New Pathways to Civil Justice is out

Our book New pathways to civil justice in Europe has just been published by Springer. It results from one of the international conferences organized by our ERC group (’Challenge accepted!’) and this one was particularly memorable. The book focuses on innovative pathways to civil justice with a view to improving access to justice. It encompasses the four key topics of the project: use of Artificial Intelligence and its interaction with judicial systems; ADR and ODR tracks in privatising justice systems; the effects of increased self-representation on access to justice; and court specialization and the establishment of commercial courts to counter the trend of vanishing court trials. Top academics and experts from Europe, the US and Canada address these topics in a critical and multidisciplinary manner, combining legal, socio-legal and empirical insights. More information and sales available at the Springer website. The Introductory chapter by the editors (Erasmus University Rotterdam) and the final chapter by Judith Resnik (Yale University) are available for free download.

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.
