CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT: In Pursuit of Pluralist Jurisprudence

Thursday & Friday, 5-6 February 2015, Faculty of Law, National University of Singapore
Existing jurisprudential analyses of law beyond the state have focused upon substantive questions surrounding the institutional, normative and systemic character of non-state law, both on its own and in interaction with state law. That scholarship, however, has revealed a significant gap surrounding questions of jurisprudential methodology, purpose and scope. These are the broad themes the conference will aim to address.
