Hannah L. Buxbaum (Indiana University School of Law-Bloomington) has published the U.S. national report on “Conflict of Laws Conventions and Their Reception in National Legal Systems: Report for the United States” , THE IMPACT OF UNIFORM LAW ON NATIONAL LAW: LIMITS AND POSSIBILITIES, J. Sanchez Cordero, ed., 2010, prepared for the Intermediate Congress of the International Academy of Comparative Law held in 2008.
The abstract reads in part:
“…The report discusses the various mechanisms for implementation of conflict-of-laws conventions in the United States: through federal legislation, federal rulemaking and state legislation. It reviews the conflict-of-laws conventions to which the United States is party (including in the areas of family law and litigation procedure), as well as recent case-law under those conventions. It also examines relevant aspects of U.S. law on treaties, discussing the issue of self-executing versus non-self executing treaties within the particular context of private law conventions.”
