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.

The YCC has prepared several primers or “how-to” guides to introduce colleagues to the work of the ASCL.  We hope these prove useful.
