Publication Date 1998
ISBN 9789041107091
Format Hardcover
Publisher Kluwer Law International Ltd

 

This one-of-a-kind collection includes a selection of major presentations delivered during the inaugural Anglo-Japanese Comparative Law Conference, which took place in 1996 at Jesus College, Cambridge. The conference was hosted by the University of London's Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, the University of Tsukuba in Japan, and Murdoch University in Australia. The conference brought together a group of top business attorneys from across the globe to debate the influence of globalisation on commercial law. If internationalisation of commerce and business has caused challenges for attorneys, the influence of globalisation, especially in sectors like the financial market, has been much more challenging. The ramifications of changes in the form and behaviour of markets for all individuals who work in the commercial and financial sectors, as well as those who advise them, are becoming more important. Academics, transnational business professionals, and legal practitioners will all benefit from the publication.
