This summer I will be teaching a course entitled "Tort Law in Global Perspective" in Venice from June 22 until July 3rd. The course will cover basic common law/civil law differences and then explore how particular injuries are covered in different countries. In addition to my course, Justice Randy Holland of the Delaware Supreme Court will teach a course on comparative corporate law and Professor Massimiliano Granieri (professor of comparative private law and economic analysis at the University of Foggia Law School) will teach a course on EU law. More information on the program, courses, and schedule is available here. The classes will take place at Venice International University on San Servolo Island, pictured below.
