Marble-presentation in Dubrovnik3 July 2012
At the end of May, the yearly international seminar on Public and Private Justice took place in Dubrovnik (Croatia). The seminar is mainly focused on civil procedure in an international and comparative setting. This year’s topic was on "Appeals in the Context of Efficiency and Fairness".
Scholars from all over the world (from China to the United States and many countries in between) shared their results with their colleagues. One of the finest presentations was given by three of our Marble-students (Dutch law), Lisa Molenaars, Luuk van der Baaren en Jonathan Huijts (see picture against the background of the Adriatic)).
Under the title "Does appeal really matter?" they showed that, according to the preliminary results of their empirical research, Dutch civil appeal proceedings cost more than they matter to the parties. They received many compliments from the law professors and legal professionals present.
