INTER-INSTITUTIONAL RELATIONS IN GLOBAL LAW AND GOVERNANCE — Viterbo, Italy 

On June 13-14, 2013, the Institute for Research on Public administration, LUISS School of Government, and NYU Law will host the 9th Global Administrative Law Seminar. Abstracts should be sent by February 3, 2012.

1. Overview

The vast increase in global regulation has attracted significant attention from both scholars and practitioners. The global governance literature now comprises several different approaches, including a substantial body of work done from the perspective of ‘global administrative law’. In this and other work, it has long been recognised that institutions in the global administrative space do not act in isolation. Rather, global governance is accomplished through complex inter-relations between state-based government agencies, courts (national, regional and international), private standard-setting bodies, hybrid public-private bodies, transgovernmental networks, and formal intergovernmental organizations.

Call for Papers -- Annual Comparative Law Work-in-Progress Workshop 

March 1-2, 2013, University of Illinois College of Law, Urbana-Champaign

Organized by:
Jacqueline Ross, University of Illinois College of Law
Kim Scheppele, Princeton Program in Law and Public Affairs
Maximo Langer, University of California at Los Angeles

We invite all interested comparative law scholars to consider submitting a paper to the next annual Comparative Law Work-in-Progress Workshop, which will be held on Friday and Saturday, March 1 and 2, 2013, at the University of Illinois College of Law in Urbana-Champaign.

OVERVIEW: The conference will begin mid-day on March 1 and continue through the end of March 2. Participants should plan to arrive either Thursday evening (February 28) or Friday morning (March 1), and to leave on Sunday (March 3.) We bid a fond farewell to outgoing co-organizer Jim Whitman, from Yale University Law School, who has been called away by other duties. We thank him for his invaluable help with this workshop and will miss him. We are also delighted to welcome our new co-organizer, Maximo Langer, who is Professor of Law at UCLA School of Law. The Comparative Law Work-in-Progress Workshop will rotate between our home institutions and continues to be co-sponsored by the American Society of Comparative Law.

The annual workshop continues to be an important forum in which comparative law work in progress can be explored among colleagues in a serious and thorough manner that will be truly helpful to the respective authors. We will accept up to seven papers and select a mix of both junior and senior scholars. The participants will consist of the respective authors, commentators, and faculty members of the host institutions. The overall group will be kept small enough to sit around a large table and to allow serious discussion. Each paper will be discussed by two commentators and all authors are expected to have read and be prepared to discuss all of the papers selected for the workshop. The papers will not be presented at the workshop. They will be distributed well in advance and every participant must have read them before attending the meeting. Commentators will present and discuss the papers, after which the workshop participants will be invited to join in the discussion. The author will be given an opportunity to respond and ask questions of his or her own. There are no plans to publish the papers. Instead, it is up to the authors to seek publication if, and wherever, they wish.

The Workshop will be funded by the host school and by the American Society of Comparative Law. Authors of papers and commentators will be reimbursed for their travel expenses and accommodation up to $600, by either the University of Illinois College of Law or by the American Society of Comparative Law, in accordance with the ASCL reimbursement police (as posted on its webpage.) The ASCL asks that authors inquire into funding opportunities at their home institutions before applying for reimbursement by the ASCL.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Interested authors should submit papers to Jacqueline Ross, jeross1@illinois.edu by January 5, 2013. We will inform authors of our decision by the end of January.

"Work in progress" means scholarship that has reached a stage at which it is substantial enough to merit serious discussion and critique but that has not yet appeared in print (and can still be revised after the workshop, if it has already been accepted for publication.) It includes law review articles, book chapters or outlines, substantial book reviews, and other appropriate genres.

Our objective is not only to provide an opportunity for the discussion of scholarly work but also to create the opportunity for comparative lawyers to get together for two days devoted to nothing but talking shop, both in the sessions and outside. We hope that this will create synergy that fosters more dialogue, cooperation, and an increased sense of coherence for the discipline.

Law and Popular Culture: International Perspectives — Tilburg, Netherlands 


Tilburg University
Tilburg, The Netherlands
Law and Popular Culture: International Perspectives
June 6–7, 2013


The field of law and popular culture concentrates on the interface between two subjects of enormous importance in contemporary society. On the one hand, law affects everyone’s life, and courts resolve many important social, political, and economic issues. On the other hand, most people consume large amounts of popular culture in the form of film, television, novels, comic books, theater, music, and other mass media. Indeed, most people learn much of what they know (or think they know) about law and lawyers from works of popular culture. Numerous scholars now work in the area of law and popular culture, and courses and seminars on the subject are taught in undergraduate and graduate programs around the world.

On June 6 and 7, 2013, the Department of Culture Studies at Tilburg University will convene a two-day international conference on research and teaching in the field of law and popular culture. Papers on any aspect of the relationship between law and popular culture are welcome. Amongst the questions to be addressed are the following: In what ways do popular representations of law mediate conceptions of justice either locally or across cultures? What are the methodologies for teaching law and popular culture in undergraduate and graduate programs? How does popular culture represent lawyers in various practice settings? What can we learn from studying popular representations of justice in systems that are not our own?

Materials and presentations will be in English. The conveners of the conference are:

Kathryn Brown
Department of Culture Studies
Tilburg University
k.j.brown@tilburguniversity.edu

Michael Asimow
Stanford Law School
asimow@law.stanford.edu

David Papke
Marquette University Law School
david.papke@marquette.edu

We invite you to submit an abstract of a 20 minute paper that you would like to deliver at the conference. Abstracts should be limited to 200 words and should be accompanied by a brief biographical statement. Abstracts should be sent to Michael Asimow by email not later than December 1, 2012. Notifications regarding acceptance of papers will be sent by February 1, 2013.

We will attempt to locate a venue for publication of selected papers presented at the conference.
