The International Law Institute ("ILI") is pleased to announce a Program on Modernizing Russian Law, to be held in ILI's newly renovated conference facilities on April 4, from 10:00 am -12:00 pm.

The Program will feature a:

  • Professor Peter Maggs, Clifford M. and Bette A. Carney Chair in Law, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champagne, will provide comments

Professor Mozolin will describe the current debate among Russian law scholars on how legislation and the Civil Code can best promote Russian economic development.

Don Wallace, Jr., Chairman of the ILI, will host the program and Randy Bregman, a partner at Dentons, will moderate.
