Title: Fourth Annual Conference on the Future of the Commercial Contract in Scholarship and Law Reform Organised by the IALS Centre for Corporate and Finance Law (CCFL)

Director: Professor Mads Andenas

Description: This conference follows up on research undertaken at IALS during the 2016-2018 period. It invites new participants to the project and new topics to be added. A special focus will be on law and technology, the role of artificial intelligence in contracting, so called smart contracts, blockchain and other forms of digital interaction and digitisation in commercial contracting, enforcement and civil liability. This can include arbitration agreements and ‘electronic’ dispute settlement.

Academic convenors: Dr Maren Heidemann, IALS, Catherine Pédamon, University of Westminster and Dr Joseph Lee, University of Exeter.

Date: Wednesday 5th June 2019

Title: Harmonisation and the Law – interdisciplinary and comparative enquiries. An interdisciplinary approach to legislative drafting?

Speakers: Dr Maren Heidemann, IALS, University of London; Dr Simon Desbruslais, University of Hull; Dr Martin Parker Dixon, University of Glasgow

Description: The seminar brings together scholars from several disciplines of the arts and humanities in order to revisit the notion of harmony in a number of contexts. Harmony plays a role in music, architecture, sculpture, philosophy, sociology and many more scholarly disciplines, last but not least in the law where it has acquired a fixed place in legal terminology without ever enjoying a clear definition, though. Harmonisation of laws is often used as a synonym for uniform law on an international level. Within the EU, it has its most proliferous use in the context of law but has been replaced by the term ‘approximation’ in more recent legislative texts. The convenors of this event believe, however, that harmonisation, if understood properly, could be a powerful tool in shaping better law and are proposing research with the aim to explore the full potential of harmony and harmonisation for the law by building a new, innovative and interdisciplinary method and meaning of harmonised law.
