OVERVIEW: The Faculty of Political Science and Law, UQAM, seeks to promote the analysis of the dynamic links between law and its social environment. Indeed, legal phenomena might be fully assessed only through analysing the relationships between legal norms and their philosophical, social and political foundations. Therefore, the contribution of other disciplines, such as social sciences and humanities, is essential to the in-depth study of law.

If any provision of the United States Constitution speaks to those issues, it is the Thirteenth Amendment. The Amendment’s proponents maintained that it established “freedom” and a “free labor system,” a view eventually accepted by the U.S. Supreme Court.

The ways power is exercised today at the global level seems to be qualitatively different, demanding new responses from international law and other relvant disciplines. In particular, it seems that today the exercise of power at the global level is less controllable, less subject to restraints and checks than some decades ago.

The Judicialization of International Law - A Mixed Blessing?” Oslo, 10–12 September 2015

In whose name do courts decide? Many domestic courts provide an answer in the
opening words of their decisions. They routinely evoke the source of their legitimacy

comparable. International courts and tribunals do not say in whose name they speak
the law. What is the source of their legitimacy?

Congress has abandoned its own budgetary process, major cities have declared or considered bankruptcy, and public pension systems and the viability of other unfunded liabilities is becoming an increasing source of concern. Healthcare spending is occupying a significant share of both state and federal non-discretionary spending.
