Write On! Call for Papers from Toronto Group for the Study of International, Transnational and Comparative Law (note deadline: 9 February)

The Toronto Group for the study of International, Transnational and Comparative Law (TG) invites graduate students to present their work at the 7th Annual Conference of the TG, a collaborative project between graduate students at Osgoode Hall Law School and the Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto.

The theme of the conference is “Law Beyond the State.” It will be held in Toronto, Ontario on Friday, May 2, 2015 at Osgoode Hall Law School.

Participants are invited to conceptualize, criticize and examine the status of law from various perspectives. While much of Western legal thought has conceptualized the existence and operation of law as arising from a state paradigm, this year’s theme provides participants an opportunity to examine instances of law that is not dependent on the state. Please refer to the attached call for abstracts for complete details on the Call for Proposals.

The deadline for submission of conference abstracts is February 9, 2015.
