Program Description: The George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School is proud to host the Tenth Annual Transatlantic Law Forum. This year‘s Forum is entitled Business and the Rule of Law. Over two days, prominent scholars, judges, and legal practitioners from both sides of the Atlantic will discuss pressing legal and political questions in a world where relations between business and government have become much more contentious, much more global, and much more incestuous. Panel and Luncheon topics include “Legal Uncertainty, Risk, and Ambiguity”; “Global Business and Resurgent Nationalism”; “Bargaining with the State”; “Government Networks and Arbitration”; “The Fate of the Productive Middle Class”; and “Corporatism, Cronies, and Corruption.”
On this as on all prior occasions, the Transatlantic Law Forum will provide a forum for a robust, constructive exchange of ideas among participants from a wide range of perspectives. Prominent speakers for the Tenth Annual Forum include The Honorable Diane Wood (US Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit); William Galston (Brookings Institution); Gerald Braunberger (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung); Charles Murray (American Enterprise Institute); and Luca Enriques (Oxford University).
