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

The YCC is an active part of ASCL’s events and activities, but also hosts a number of independent workshops, conferences, and events with the support of the Society. 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.
