Law & Boundaries: Conference, Science Po, Paris 28–29 March 2012

by | 27 Jan 2012

Sciences Po Law School will host the Law and Boundaries International Conference on March 28th and 29th 2012. The conference seeks to create a cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural dialogue between students coming from European and foreign universities. The project was initially driven by the feeling that legal scholarship has remained largely silent in the aftermath of the economic crisis, especially concerning the role of lawyers and legal templates.

Another underlying impetus is the concern over the relative absence of European legal scholarship in debates concerning cutting-edge global governance issues. The challenge is to explore how European legal thought can help to understand problems brought about by globalization.
