The annual seminar of the Mexican Academy of Private International and Comparative Law will take place online from 18 to 20 November 2020

The Mexican Academy of Private International and Comparative Law (AMEDIP) will be holding its XLIII Seminar entitled “Private International Law in the current international climate” from 18 to 20 November 2020 for the first time online!

One of the topics to be discussed is COVID-19 and private international law. In addition, two Hague Conventions feature prominently in the list of topics submitted for discussion: the 1996 HCCH Protection of Children Convention and the recent 2019 HCCH Judgments Convention.

Potential speakers are invited to submit a paper in Spanish, English or Portuguese by 16 August 2020. 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.
