Second Encounter Private Law Sections Carlos III - Erasmus School of Law

On 18 October 2019 the Second Encounter Private Law Sections Carlos III – Erasmus School of Law took place. The first encounter was in February 2018 in Madrid.

This time the Private Law Department of Carlos III University visited Rotterdam. Organised by Consuelo Carrasco and Tammo Wallinga, both departments joined in a symposium in which they presented their current research activities. Together with Consuelo Carrasco, Tammo Wallinga gave a historical overview of Delictual responsibility from Roman Law to the Código Civil and the Burgerlijk Wetboek.

BACT members Marnix Hebly, Melissa de Groot and Josje de Vogel presented their PhD research (respectively on Damage Assessment and Time, Compensation for Costs of Care and Private Lease). Koen Swinnen presented his current research on Ownership of Data and Harriët Schelhaas gave a presentation on Interpretation of Juridical Acts. This once again inspiring encounter between the two private law sections of the universities ended with dinner in the Hotel New York.
