June 26, 2008--The latest issue of Tulane Law Review (vol. 82, no. 5, May 2008) has published the proceedings of a February 2008 conference hosted by the Center for International & Comparative Law, in collaboration with the Tulane journal. "The New European Choice-of-Law Revolution: Lessons for the United States?" brought together leading transatlantic experts to discuss new developments in European conflict of laws and their implications for America.

Professor Ralf Michaels, director of the Center, contributed the lead article in the volume, in which he lays out his hypothesis that these European developments amount to an actual "revolution."

"The Tulane Law Review, with its strong emphasis on comparative law, ensures that the contributions will find a wide international audience," said Michaels.
