As a follow-up to the Globalization of Class Actions Conference in Oxford last December, Stanford has launched the Global Class Actions Clearinghouse Website. As Deborah Hensler writes, "[W]e hope [this website] will also become a repository for statutes, rules and important cases; articles and commentary; and news of developments and events related to the evolution of representative litigation, class actions and group proceedings worldwide." For those of you who would like to be consulted on class action developments within your country, send an e-mail to Deborah Hensler with your name, title, and institutional affiliation. Many thanks to Deborah, Christopher Hodges, and Stanford for spearheading this project, which will certainly improve the dissemination of knowledge about class actions worldwide.
