It seems crazy to talk about the Judgments Convention when the prospects for the Choice of Court Agreements Convention, which should be an easier lift, seem so grim. But the Hague Conference has recently taken big steps towards a Judgments Convention with the publication of a proposed draft text, with an explanatory note. A Special Commission will be meeting in the Hague from June 1 to 9.

I hope to have at least a couple of posts about the Convention after the conclusion of the meeting, from an American perspective and from a non-American perspective, perhaps with some exciting guest posters. If the Hague Conference posts new materials between now and then, I’ll try to bring them to your attention.
