The conference convenors will be Professors Jason Neyers, Stephen Pitel and Erika Chamberlain, all of the Faculty of Law at Western.

The Obligations series of conferences originated at the University of Melbourne in 2002, and has since become one of the leading private law conferences in the common law world.

Mostly recently, the Obligations V Conference was held at the University of Oxford. 2012 will mark the first time that the conference will be held in North America.

London, Ontario is a two-hour drive from both Toronto and Niagara Falls, and is 45 minutes from the world famous Stratford Shakespearean Festival. Nestled among the Great Lakes, London is also close to some of the world’s best freshwater beaches and the Bruce Peninsula/Fathom Five National Park, a world biosphere preserve which is home to over 22 shipwrecks and historic lighthouses. We look forward to hosting you in 2012. Please stay tuned to this website for details.
