With the Scottish Association of Comparative Law (SACL), BACL coordinates the national reports submitted to the International Congress of Comparative Law.
The International Congress of Comparative Law, now in its 20th edition, is an event that started in 1900, at the Paris Conference, when “comparative law” started to be recognised as an academic field in its own right. It is organised every four years by the Academy of Comparative Law.
The previous editions were held:
- in 2014, in Vienna
- in 2010, in Washington – see here for more details
- in 2006, in Utrecht – more information on the UK national reports can be found in the Electronic Journal of Comparative Law, 2006, vol. (10:1)
