The best ways to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the flu and other respiratory viruses are to:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Stay home is you are sick; if you must be out and about, consider wearing a paper (“surgical”) mask and avoid close contact with others.

  • Cover your cough. Cough into your sleeve, not your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Reception to follow from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in Donor Lobby

Towards Comparative Legal Institutionalism

Comparative law today leads only a shadow existence at law schools in the U.S. and elsewhere. This has been true especially for the last three decades when globalization and global law have gained prominence, diminishing the interest in (foreign) local law. In this talk, I will argue that comparative law is best thought of as a methodology that can and should be employed for analyzing the role of (formal) law in relation to other forms of social ordering at the national, transnational and international levels. My argument builds on the tradition of institutionalism in neighboring disciplines (economics, history, political sciences), which has recently been extended to “legal institutionalism” (Deakin et al., 2015). Legal institutionalism, however, suffers from lack of comparative insight. In my talk, I hope to show the relevance of comparative legal analysis that focuses on legal institutions, their operation and change in different contexts, for finding answers to questions about social ordering and governance that have long preoccupied social theorists and students of global governance. Comparative legal institutionalism, I will argue can help us (1) identify the relevance of law in comparison to other modes of social ordering; (2) understand the political economy of legal ordering in different local and global contexts and (3) analyze how legal change interacts with patterns of economic and social change domestically as well as globally.

Katharina Pistor is the Edwin B. Parker Professor of Comparative Law at Columbia Law School and director of the Law School’s Center on Global Legal Transformation. Her work spans comparative law and corporate governance, law and finance, and law and development. She is the co-recipient of the Max Planck Research Award (2012), a member of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Science and a Fellow at the European Corporate Governance Institute. Her most recent book is “The Code of Capital: How the Law Creates Wealth and Inequality” (Princeton UP, 2019).
