The 12th Annual Henry C. Morris Lecture in International and Comparative Law
On Monday, March 20, 2000, at 12 noon in the Auditorium, please plan on attending the 12th annual Henry C. Morris Lecture in International and Comparative Law. This year’s lecture is entitled Conflicting Laws in a Common Market: The NAFTA Experiment. Professor Patrick Glenn will discuss how the three North American countries have adapted their national laws, at a sub-NAFTA level, to the free movement of goods in North America. The use and control of blocking statutes will be examined, particularly as they may affect U.S. judicial orders. The use of national constitutions to facilitate NAFTA objectives will also be explored.
Professor Glenn is the Peter M. Laing Professor of Law of McGill University and former director (1998-1999) of McGill University’s Institute of Comparative Law. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and a Member of the International Academy of Comparative Law. Educated at British Columbia, Queen’s, Harvard and Strasbourg, where he obtained his doctorate in French law, he has been a visiting scholar at Munich, Aix-en-Provence, Fribourg, Lausanne and Puebla.

issues articulated in the lecture. Please RSVP your attendance
