On Friday, May 22, 2011, Professor Ronald Brand participated as a member of the ASIL Working Group on Implementation of the Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreements at Tillar House in Washington, D.C.  The Working Group was established to advise U.S. State Department Legal Adviser, Harold Koh, on the implementation of the 2005 Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreements.  Its task is to reconcile differing positions between full federal implementation and implementation through “cooperative federalism” that would involve use of a Uniform International Choice of Court Agreements Act promulgated by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws.
