His work as a Commissioner, complementing his teaching interests, has included participation in the recent revision of the Uniform Commercial Code and helping to transform the mission of the Conference to include taking an active role in the development of international private law in fields of Conference interest. He is chair of the Conferences Committee on International Legal Developments.
