About the Author

Symeon C. Symeonides is the Alex L. Parks Distinguished Professor of Law and Dean Emeritus at Willamette University School of Law. He is a renowned expert in comparative conflicts law, having published over 24 books and more than 100 articles (in seven languages) on conflict of laws, and comparative private international law (PrIL). His work has been characterized as "brilliant" and "engrossing" receiving four scholarly prizes, including one for life-time achievement from the American Society of Comparative Law. Reviewers have called him "a conflicts giant," the "world's leading expert on comparative conflicts law," and the "father of codification." He drafted three path-breaking PrIL codifications (for Louisiana, Puerto Rico, and Oregon) and has provided legislative advice to the EU Parliament, the EU Council, and several national governments. He holds degrees in private and public law, and three honorary doctorates from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and an LL.M and an S.J.D from the Harvard Law School.
