This is an edited transcript of the closing plenary session of the XVIIIth International Congress of Comparative Law. The session took place on Saturday, July 31, 2010, in Washington, D.C., at the conclusion of the week-long congress, which is held quadrennially by the International Academy of Comparative Law (Acadimie Internationale de Droit Compare). The remarks were given in a mix of French and English, but for ease of reading the transcript is almost entirely in English.
