On 9 July 2007, the Graduate Institute of International Studies (HEI) and LALIVE organised and co-hosted the first Lalive Lecture at the HEI. The purpose of the new lecture series, which will be organised annually, is to create a forum for intellectual reflection on recent developments in the interface between public and private international law. The series is named in honor of Me Jean-Flavien Lalive and Professor Pierre Lalive, two prominent Geneva lawyers and founders of the LALIVE firm, who have dedicated their professional and academic careers to the interaction between these two fields. The inaugural lecture was delivered by H. E. Judge Rosalyn Higgins, President of the International Court of Justice, The Hague on the topic “The International Court of Justice and Some Private International Law Thoughts”. The lecture was followed by a reception. The event was an astounding success, with more than 200 attendants.
