DAMAGES, REMEDIES AND RECOVERIES IN SHIPPING AND COMMERCIAL LAWContinue reading IISTL’s 17th Colloquium 6-7 September 2022
This is a blog for commercial lawyers. Three other blogs (or rather, one blog and two discussion lists) help keep us well-informed and deserve a plug.
First, there’s a new North American blog based at Harvard, entitled New Private Law: Project on the Foundations of Private Law. Started brilliantly and promises well. Go to http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/nplblog/
Second, the Association of American Law Schools’ AALS Contracts listserv. Mainly US, but some English and European input too. A listserv is essentially an email exchange facility. If you have a thought, you send it to their composite email address (email@example.com) and it automatically goes to all subscribers. Long threads can build up. You have to be a subscriber to participate. To become one, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with just the wording SUBSCRIBE AALSCONTRACTS in the message body. Enquiries to the list owner at email@example.com. You get a steady trickle of emails, which occasionally becomes a gush when something sexy comes up.
Third, there’s the Obligations Discussion Group (ODG). Also a listserv; same principles as above. Run by the excellent Prof Jason Neyers at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada. English and Commonwealth predominantly; some US. Intelligent, informal and fun. To join, contact Jason Neyers at firstname.lastname@example.org. A bit like London buses: you can go a long time with nothing at all and then your inbox gets deluged with argument for a few hours.
