Launching the Center on Law and Globalization

Inaugurated on October 26, 2007 during a joint meeting of the American Bar Foundation’s Board of Directors and the University of Illinois College of Law’s Board of Visitors, the Center on Law and Globalization’s first year has focused on laying an operational foundation to support the Center’s mission. Specific achievements during this first year include:

• bringing on board a core group of leading international legal figures to the Center’s International Advisory Board
• identifying a core group of affiliated faculty drawn from the research faculty of the American Bar Foundation and from the faculty of the University of Illinois College of Law
• launch of the Center’s inaugural website located at www.lexglobal.org featuring an introductory Smart Library on Globalization, which treats the topics:
o Perspectives on Law and Globalization
o Sites and Types of Global Lawmaking
o The Global Spread of Law
• launch of the Center’s SSRN Research Paper Series
• planning for 2009 colloquia series, including the launch of a Chicago‐based Global Practice of Law Series featuring prominent legal practitioners from around the world.

In its second year of operation, the Center will seek to leverage its resource and colloquia programs to introduce itself and to make connections with projects and researchers around the world who are working to understand the effects of globalization on the development and practice of law worldwide. To facilitate planning and to ensure financial sustainability beyond the Center’s set‐up phase, a planning grant will be pursued in addition to the launch of a broad‐based fundraising program in 2009‐2009.
