May 2020 – On May 12th, Rainbow Willard and Agustina Alfaro delivered a lecture about pretrial activities in US civil procedure at IE Law School (Madrid).
The lively discussion that followed highlighted the similarities and differences with the analogous procedural stage under the European Rules of Civil Procedure, a soft law instrument prepared by the European Law Institute (ELI) and the International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT)—which is about to be finalized and adopted by both institutions.
The lecture was conducted online and attended by over 50 students from various jurisdictions, including Spain, USA, Guatemala, Colombia, Venezuela, Mauritania, Belgium, Romania, Germany, Egypt, Russia, Italy, UAE, and Kazakhstan.
The lecture and discussion were held as part of the activities of the Jean Monnet Chair in European Civil Procedure granted by the European Commission to Professor Marco de Benito at IE University.
