Conflict of Laws and Core American Constitutional Values
October 28 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
One of the most difficult factual scenarios presented by such a collision arises in the context where the news media publishes articles based on confidential or private information that the reporter obtained in violation of a court order prohibiting its dissemination.
The lecture by Visiting Guest Professor Simon, which should be of interest to everyone concerned with comparative law and conflict of laws issues, discusses and analyzes these conflicts in depth, and suggests a mechanism by which the courts may render justice where, as here, fundamental constitutional and statutory rights collide. Ample opportunity for questions will be offered.
The event is in English and is open to public.
