    This program will feature reflections from a diverse group of scholars on the contributions of Mark Tushnet to the field of comparative law. Tushnet, currently the William Nelson Cromwell Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, will retire from the faculty in June 2020. This panel offers an opportunity for scholars who are new to his work in comparative law to learn about his vast body of scholarship and also for those familiar with his work to situate his contributions in the larger field. A substantial portion of the program will be reserved for discussion and comments from the floor. The program will end with the presentation of the First Annual "Mark Tushnet Prize,” created by the Chair and Executive Committee of the Section to recognize scholarly excellence in any subject of comparative law by an untenured scholar at an AALS Member School. 
    The Section held a virtual business meeting prior to the Annual Meeting.
