Hague Judgments Project – Articles by Goddard and Teitz


The Duke Journal of Comparative and International Law has published two new articles on the Hague Judgments project, just in time for the upcoming Diplomatic Session in June. David Goddard QC, Chair of the Special Commission on the Judgments Project, describes the current state of play in the development of a draft Convention and identifies some of the key issues that participants will need to address when they meet in June. Louise Ellen Teitz (Roger Williams University and formerly First Secretary at the Hague Conference) provides the background on the negotiations through the years and suggests bucking the past to provide for the future. Both articles, emerging from symposia at NYU and at the AALS annual meeting respectively, will be essential reading for participants and observers of the Diplomatic Session.
