Every effort is being made to achieve truly interactive meetings in the Academy-format sessions, which are led by a distinguished chair and a general reporter but which will allow comment and conversation between national reporters from many countries and others in attendance at each session. In addition, the agenda includes a number of panels exploring innovative topics in comparative law.
Aside from the academic program, the XVIIIth Congress will include social events, such as breakfasts, lunches, and receptions almost every day and a closing banquet at the Organization of American States on the National Mall. The conference hotel will be the Ritz-Carlton Washington DC, which is offering extraordinary rates for those attending the XVIIIth Congress, but availability is limited.
