Ron Brand on the Evolving Role of the US in Private International Law

Professor Ronald Brand’s article The European Magnet and the U.S. Centrifuge:  Ten Selected Private International Law Developments of 2008 has been published at 15 ILSA Journal of International and Comparative Law 367 (2009).  In the article, Brand describes the parallel process of centralization of private international law within the European Union and dispersal of authority for private international law from the federal government to the states in the United States, with the resulting loss of leadership role for the United States in the development of private international law.  Link to the paper at SSRN
