The Mexican Academy of Private International and Comparative Law organises its XLI Seminar on Private International Law


The Mexican Academy of Private International and Comparative Law (AMEDIP) will be hosting its XLI Seminar entitled “Towards the Unification of Private International Law Principles in Mexican Procedural Law” at the Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro (Mexico) from 14 to 16 November 2018.

The seminar will focus in particular on the New National Code of Civil and Family Procedure, which will contain PIL provisions. This is a significant development given that at present each Mexican state (32) has its own procedural law.

Potential speakers are invited to submit a paper in Spanish, English, or Portuguese by 17 September 2018. Papers must comply with the criteria established by AMEDIP and will be evaluated accordingly. Selected speakers will be required to give their presentations preferably in Spanish as there will be no interpretation services but some exceptions may be made by the organisers upon request.

The final programme of the seminar will be made available at the end of October.
