17th Annual Business Law Fall Forum

Date: 8:30am - 5:30pm PDT October 12, 2012 Location: Erskine B. Wood Hall

Erskine B. Wood Hall

This forum will evaluate international investment law (IIL) through a lens of sustainable development. Leading scholars will consider legal mechanisms available for addressing a tension inherent in foreign investment: its potential to promote economic development and raise standards of living, on the one hand, and its potential adverse impacts on the environment and local populations, on the other. Participants in the forum will evaluate options within IIL for balancing these competing interests and goals, as well as potential solutions external to IIL, including standards of corporate social responsibility and contractual devices.
