Kaye Scholer Sponsors Cape Town Convention Academic Project
Kaye Scholer is a sponsor of the First Annual Cape Town Convention Academic Conference held in the Faculty of Law, Oxford University on September 5-6, 2012 in Oxford, United Kingdom.
The Cape Town Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment (CTC) is one of the world’s most important commercial law treaties, intended to standardize transactions involving mobile property, particularly aircraft, railway and space assets, and has secured over 50 ratifications in a relatively short period of time. The conference is a forum focusing on the issues raised by the CTC, such as the use of private law conventions in transnational law, and the process by which such conventions are developed and agreed. Kaye Scholer Partner Michael Mulitz is a member of the Legal Advisory Panel to the Aviation Working Group for the Cape Town Convention, which advises on matters relating to the Convention, its application and implementation.
The Cape Town Convention Academic Project is a joint undertaking between the University of Oxford Faculty of Law and the University of Washington School of Law. The project’s purpose is to study and assess the CTC and advance its aims.
