Professor Robertson Presents on European Law of the Commons

Professor Heidi Gorovitz Robertson presented “The Common Core of European Private Law: Meeting the Challenge of the Commons — the United States Report” at a lunch talk to faculty, staff, and students at the University of Maine School of Law (via Zoom) on February 15, 2023. The presentation described Professor Robertson’s experience as the United States Reporter (with Monica Epperson, St. Louis University) on the Access to Commons Working Group for the Common Core of European Private Law project — a 20+ year research project funded, in part, by the European Union. She discussed both the research process, which was unusual because it involved participation in the creation of a series of specific fact-based questions to be answered by national reporters, as well as the differences in global perspectives on commons.
