Professor Daniel Girsberger is the keynote speaker at the CODIFI Conference
Examining the Principles on Choice of Law in International Commercial Contracts from a practical perspective, Professor Daniel Girsberger spoke about the origins of the instrument and what the Principles are and what they are not. This session also featured an interview discussing the works of the Working Group, the innovative elements in the Principles, and how they can be useful in arbitration. Professor Girsberger outlined what could be the future in expanding the legal framework on the choice of law in international contracts.
