Professor Charles Calleros presented at the Global Legal Skills Conference in Verona, Italy on May 23, discussing his methods for teaching common law legal method to civil law students. Beginning June 2, he taught a week-long course at the University of Paris Renee Descartes, primarily on Comparative Conflict Laws, comparing the approaches in the U.S. and Europe in choosing between domestic laws of interested states or nations in international commercial transactions. The course also included an overview of common law legal method and a comparison of French and U.S. law on the enforceability of penalty clauses in commercial contracts.
Calleros' research interests include international and comparative contract law, international conflict of laws, the intersection of free speech with race and gender discrimination, and various issues regarding legal education. At ASU, he teaches Contracts, International Contracts, Civil Rights Legislation, and Legal Method and Writing, using his own published textbooks for Contracts and Legal Method and Writing.
