BACKGROUND

The Model European Rules of Civil Procedure have been developed as a cooperative venture between the European Law Institute (ELI) and UNIDROIT. They constitute the most important comparative project on civil procedure in Europe since the Storme Report. Our conference seeks to bring together a broad group of Nordic proceduralists to discuss the Model Rules as well as their potential future impact from our particular Nordic perspective. The Model European Rules will be published soon.
