Rethinking Law and Boundaries
The Tel Aviv University Buchmann Faculty of Law is pleased to invite submissions to its 5th annual workshop for junior scholars in law. The workshop provides junior scholars with the opportunity to present and discuss their work, receive meaningful feedback from faculty members and peers and aims to invigorate the scholars’ active participation in the community of international junior scholars in law.
The interface between law and boundaries is subject to ongoing debate amongst legal scholars. On one hand, the law may be perceived as setting a legal boundary in social life, for instance between normative and criminal behavior; On the other hand, the law may be perceived as an instrument used by different power groups in order to change, preserve or re-affirm the social order. The workshop seeks to offer a scholarly debate on law and boundaries, from various perspectives.
Relevant papers may discuss a variety of legal fields such as private law, criminal law, corporate & finance law, environmental law, international & human rights law, family law, IP, law & technology, etc., as well as theoretical and jurisprudential issues.
Travel grants and accommodation may be available for participants with no institutional funding.
Abstracts of up to 400 words of the proposed presentation, CV and your current institutional affiliation(s), should be submitted by email to TAU.firstname.lastname@example.org by May 10th, 2019. Applicants requesting travel grants and/or accommodation should indicate so in their submission, along with the city they expect to depart from and an estimate of the funds requested.
Applicants will be informed of acceptance or rejection by June 2019. Selected scholars must submit their papers of up to 10,000 words in length by September 1st, 2019.
