The Younger Comparativists Committee (YCC) at the American Society of Comparative Law (ASCL)—hence, YCC@ASCL—is a global professional network of comparative lawyers.

The YCC is an active part of the ASCL, but also hosts a number of independent workshops, conferences, and events.  We invite you to learn more about the YCC’s activities in these pages, and to also network with us on social media.  We look forward to welcoming you to the YCC in person.
