The Trans-Lex.org is a free research and codification platform for transnational law developed by Professor Berger and the Center for Transnational Law at the University of Cologne.
The Trans-Lex.org is a compilation of international private and public law principles, case law and arbitral decisions, national legislation, and scholarly articles. Damon will be speaking with Professor Berger about how the idea for the website came about, the various features of the website, user feedback, how the online materials are kept current, and much more. As the Trans-Lex.org is nearing its one year anniversary, Professor Berger will also discuss potential changes and improvements to the website.
