Newsletter: The Private Law Gazette

The Private Law Gazette reports on the stories and events behind the Institute’s research work. From international marriages to road accidents abroad to multinational companies, everyday life is becoming increasingly international. This brings social and economic challenges, and also demands new solutions in every field of private law. In their foundational research, the Institute’s legal scholars deal with many of these issues. The stories in the Private Law Gazette show just how closely connected to real life their research can be.
