The teachers meetings

The experience of teaching the course ‘Transnational Commercial Law’, originally as a post-graduate course at Oxford and, starting in 2008, as a combined under-graduate and post-graduate course and seminar series in Heidelberg, showed that both teachers and students felt the desire to share their experience, their views and their queries with their colleagues and friends who were engaged in similar endeavours in other law schools around the world.

In response, the authors of the book Transnational Commercial Law – Texts, Cases and Materials, Oxford University Press, Oxford, 1st edn. 2007, convened a meeting of interested teachers at which approaches to teaching the subject, new international instruments, developments in the principal formulating organisations etc. were discussed. Starting with the second gathering, also students participated in the discussions and made presentations on subjects selected by themselves.
