Alexander Layton QC completes visiting fellowship at New York University

This is an archived article, and some links may not work. Contact us if you have any questions.

Alexander Layton QC has recently completed a month-long visiting fellowship at the Center for Transnational Litigation and Commercial Law at New York University’s prestigious School of Law, as part of their programme for prominent scholars and practitioners.


During his time there, in addition to undertaking research, he worked with professors in the faculty in teaching conflicts of law classes, delivered a lecture on Anti-Suit Injunctions and International Arbitration and spoke at the Center’s Forum in support of a presentation by Professor Bo Rutledge to mark the publication of the new edition of Born & Rutledge’s well-known work on International Litigation in US courts. He also had meetings with leading specialists in public and private international law both in Washington and New York and attended as an observer a meeting of the Sub-Committee on Foreign Judgments of the US House of Representatives.


Alex Layton commented on his time in New York, “It was a great privilege, as well as a pleasure, to participate in this valuable programme of visiting fellowships. It enabled me to gain new insights into American law and practices in the field of international arbitration and litigation, and to share an Anglo-European perspective with faculty members and students at NYU.”
