Resolving Conflicts in the Law, edited by Chiara Giorgetti and Natalie Klein, honours the work of Professor Lea Brilmayer whose intellectual contribution and influence span scholarly debate and the practice of both public and private international law.

The book’s essays are from leading international law scholars and practitioners in the field—including Michael Reisman, Stephen Schwebel, Erin O’Connor O’Hara, John Crook, Philippa Webb, Kermit Roosevelt, Harold Koh—and reflect on contemporary and cutting-edge questions of international law. Each contribution enriches and advances scholarly debate on topics of law for which Lea Brilmayer is well known, including: international dispute settlement; conflicts of law; international relations theory; secession and territorial and maritime sovereignty.
