12:00 PM - Brunch Buffet and Keynote

University Club of Boston
426 Stuart St

Featuring keynote:
"Lawmakers for Global Markets: How the US Shapes Global Commerce through the United Nations"
Professor Susan Block-Lieb
Cooper Family Professor in Urban Legal Issues, Fordham Law School;
Collaborating Scholar, American Bar Foundation
For 50 years, the UN Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) has been creating hard and soft law to govern domestic and international commerce. The US has been a major player in this global enterprise. Professor Susan Block-Lieb will report on key findings from 15 years of research into UNCITRAL’s lawmaking. Her recent book, co-authored with ABF Research Professor Terry Halliday, Global Lawmakers, reveals how the US mobilizes and influences global law in dynamic negotiations with other states, UNCITRAL’s Secretariat, and non-state bodies, including industry associations, international financial institutions, and other global lawmaking bodies such as UNIDROIT.
